Abstract

They sought to be lifted out of "their class as women without the power to hold onto the ones with power: their father, their brothers, the boss" (Abbott 112). "They" are novelist Jean Rhys's characters, women who, like Rhys herself, lived in London and Paris between the World Wars. During this era Rhys published four novels: Postures (published in 1928; published in the United States under the title Quartet}, After Leaving Mr. MacKenzie (published in 1931), Voyage in the Dark (published in 1934), and Good Morning. Midnight (published in 1939).
