Rhys Matters argues for the importance of Rhys's work to a more complete understanding of modernism, postcolonial studies, Caribbean studies, and women's and gender studies. This book is the first collection of essays focusing on Rhys's writing in over twenty years, and draws together original essays that make significant new interventions in Rhys scholarship. The collection surveys nearly all of Rhys's major works, as well as providing insights into her position in various disciplinary fields including literary studies, philosophy, material studies, and Caribbean studies. Ultimately, the collection demonstrates how, and why, Rhys matters now, in the broad view of twentieth-century studies.
