WIDE SARGASSO SEA, pp. 112 – 113: The Evil Daniel Cosway

Daniel Cosway, that evil letter-writer. Self hates him with a passion. If it weren’t for him channeling Iago and writing letters about Antoinette to her English (clueless) husband, Antoinette would have had a chance to be happy.

Go away, Daniel Cosway!

Anyhoo, on pp. 112 – 113, Daniel is impatient since the English husband never responded to his letters. He therefore takes it upon himself to pay a house call (Meaning: Tragedy)

NEEDLESS TO SAY: SPOILER ALERT!

The English husband: Why did you want to see me, Daniel?

Daniel: Christophine is a bad woman and she will lie to you worse than your wife. Your own wife she talks sweet talk and she lies.

The response of the English husband: I sat still, numb, staring at him.

(Self: You, sir, are an idiot if you don’t turn this man out on his arse. Oh, you ARE an idiot. But if you weren’t, THERE WOULD BE NO STORY)

Daniel makes insinuations about Antoinette and a man the English husband has never met:

“Sandi is like a white man, but more handsome than any white man, and received by many white people they say. Your wife know Sandi a long time. Ask her and she tell you. But not everything I think.” He laughed. “Oh no, not everything.”

Damn you, Daniel Cosway! Damn you, clueless husband!

A parting shot from M. Cosway: Don’t waste your anger on me, sir. It’s not I fool you, it’s I wish to open your eyes.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

 

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Books Or Paper

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is BOOKS OR PAPER.

At first, self was just going to post a picture of the book she is currently reading: Wide Sargasso Sea, by Jean Rhys (It is a really harrowing read, there is such delicacy in the language, but such cruelty between people). She took several pictures of the book cover, and then thought it might be interesting to include pictures of the bookmark she’s been using, a 500 rupee note, a souvenir from a 2012 trip to India. (500 rupees is about $7). It was stuck in the back of a drawer, and she just happened to stumble across it:

And then she took a closer look at the 500-rupee note:

Wonder if the man with the wooden staff is Mahatma Ghandi? What do dear blog readers think?

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
