It was Lennox who broke the news to us. Usually we listen to the
BBC news & News about Britain; but on Wednesday morning we listened to
DBS,trying to find out what new imbecility the Government of Dominica
was up to. So we missed the notice, worthy of a Prime Minister, about
our friend's departure from life. Lennox knew how cloqe ae was to us,
and had read some of her short letters starting "Dearest... in a huge
crabbed handwriting. We are also grktful to Asst.Supt.Desmond Blanchard
and Mr. Stanley Boyd for reporting Jean's death.
Well, it was hardly a surprise; she was 84; and in her last letter
she had said '"I am cracking up". The strangest thingjof Ill is that so
many Dominicans do not realise what a great writer Jean was. Someone
asked'me whether she was a feminist. I should not say so, though she was
intensely independent and championed womanhood when it was degraded or
ill-used by man; she hit back with the most marvellous derision. At one
stage, after she was abandoned by a wealthy admirer, she drank, she took
drugs, she took lovers. Yet she maintained an absolute. integrity as an
artist, always writing the truth, even when it hurt her own self.
She was a Dominican. "I'm the fifth generation born out here,on
my mother's side"', she wrote in "Voyage in the Dark". Of her earliest
friend Francine, a black girl, she wrote: "But I knew that of course she
disliked me too because I was white; and that I would never be able to
explain to her that I hated being white," And again: "I was watching
them from between the slats of the jalousies dancing along dressed in red
and blue and yellow the women with Wheir dark necks and arms covered
with white powder dancing along to concertina music dressed in all the
colours of the rainbow and the sky so blue *you can't expect niggers to
behave like white people all the time Uncle Bo said it's asking too
much of human nature I was looking out of the window and I knew why
.the masks were laughing and I heard the concertina musio going -
(Carnival flashback from Voyage in the Dark.)
So Robert and I met her at last in England, during her early middle
age and our youth. She always called us _my young friends". I had to re-
mind her the other day that we.were no longer her oung friends. I recall
a wonderful ballet party she arranged with us.for her 18-year-old girl
Maryvonne, daughter of her first husband, a Dutchman.
STen came the war. And a terrible thing happened. We did not learn
of it until long afterwards. Maryvonne, who was visiting Jewish friends,
disappeared during the Nazi invasion. Her mother's heart was broken.She
also vanished for years. We thought she was dead. Then, 6ne day, a
broadcast appeal from the BBC: i"' ll Jean Rhya kindly contact the BBCGhe
will learn something to her advantage..." This was often repeated. And
at last she was discovered, in a tiny cottage in Southern England. From
then on she returned to the world of literature, and gradually, gradually,
her reputation was assured. And then -- in 1966 Andre Deutch publish-
ed "The Wide Sargasso Sea". This-made her a fortune. But as she wrote to
us, "when I was young and lovely I had only one dress and now Dior and
Chanel offer me their masterpieces.,." I once wrote a poem for her:
"I remember a fair tall island i There are painted ships and rusty
floating in cobalt paint; '.That pass the island by, Iships
the thought of it is a childhood dream! and one dark day Ill board a boat
torn by a midnight plaint when I am ready to die ."
But she dida board that boat, though' she longed to do so. She died in
the land that had ultimately given her refuge and riches England.
We are glad that Maryvonne was saved by the Jews and will inherit
her mother s fortune. And we are more than glad that Jean Rhys lived,
wrote, and was recognized.,

One of Dominica's pioneer profess-

will be leading the Dominica cricket
team in a bid to win back the Heine-

now our fourth professional, led the
team with major absentees in the peL-
sons of Irving Shillingford,Norbert

Sebastien, 23, who has been play-
ing 'fr his country: since 1971, can
do the job if anyone can. 'Apart from
Irving Shillingford, he has easily
