Mrs. Danvers's Poem

Satisfactory Essays
While walking on the grounds, the narrator noticed Mrs. Danvers watching her from Rebecca’s window and decided to confront her about the costume ball. Mrs. Danvers accused her of trying to take Rebecca’s place at Manderley. The narrator fell into some weird sort of trance and then she let Mrs. Danvers lead her to the window. Suddenly she began to get a little suicidal thinking that death was the only way for her to stop the pain of Maxim’s rejection. And Just as she was about to let go of the ledge, she heard a loud noise from the cove. Mrs. Danvers thought the explosions were rockets from a ship in distress nearby. They could hear people running on the terrace below them.
