Review:

"[T]he final triumph of Miss Rhys's stylistic control....Despite the exotic setting and the famous, abused heroine, there is no melodrama. Her prose is reticent, unemphatic, precise, and yet supple, alive with feeling....The purity of Miss Rhys's style and her ability to be at once deadly serious and offhand make her books peculiarly timeless."

A. Alvarez, New York Times Book Review, 03/17/1974

Review:

"[A]n extraordinary feat of imaginative sympathy, in which Rhys fuses her own English and West Indian experience."

Diane Johnson, Washington Post Book World, 11/03/1974
