Antoinette Cosway Mason Rochester is the narrator of part of her story, a young girl living in Jamaica. By the end of the novel Antoinette becomes immersed in hysteria, biting her husband, stabbing visitors, and yelling and screaming. The gossip coming from the town and her own husband, Rochester, believes that Antoinette's hysteria is due to bad blood from her mother. “Is your wife herself going the same way as her mother and all knowing it?” The neighbor writes to Rochester (Rhys, 164). Antoinette's mother had tried to kill her husband, and was sent away until she finally died from a cause unknown to Antoinette. It was believed that this lunacy was hereditary. The blame of Antoinette's hysteria is most always on her mother, but what about her father? The blame should be placed on both Antoinette's fathers who were absent in her life or rejecting her. The final straw for Antoinette's sanity is when her husband Rochester rejected her mirroring the rejection from her two fathers. Antoinette Cosway Mason Rochester's ultimate insanity was due to her dual paternal rejection and lack of a father figure. The blame should no longer be placed on her mother but on her father's instead. If she had a solid father figure and role model, somebody to protect her and give her advice Antoinette would have lived a normal and happy life with her husband.
The father figure in Nineteenth century England was an important one. It is different than what is expected today but the father still played a large role in a daughter’s life.” Advice of a Father to his Only Daughter” was found in an English Newsletter and was written from a father to his daughter directly after her marriage. The Father gave advice such as never attempt to control or displease your husband, teach servants to respect you and your husband, even if your husband displeases you treat him with warmth and politeness. Had Antoinette had a father that could give her advices such as this, she would have had a more successful marriage to Rochester. At the beginning of the article the father and author also describes how he is pleased that his daughter has married a man of honor, talents and of open generous disposition (Newsletter). This father was able to give his stamp of approval on his daughter's relationship where Antoinette did not have a father to make sure that she was marrying a decent man. Instead of Mr. Mason acknowledging Rochester's displeasure in the marriage Antoinette could have been saved from him. Instead Mason lies so that Rochester will accept Antoinette as his wife so that he can get rid of her.
In the Nineteenth century the father daughter relationship was also linked to a higher family bond. In a poem published in an English newspaper called “The Father and Daughter” it sheds light on the beauty and romance of a husband and wife and how this translates to the feelings of the father about his daughter. The poem talks about how the husband looks at his wife and sees how her beauty...
