and how Maxim had to go to Edgecombe to identify her body, which was ruthlessly battered by rocks and 40 miles of eroding water. Mrs. Danvers, who weirdly, began acting friendly, showed her the west wing on Manderley, and Rebecca’s dresses, robes, etc.. Beatrice takes her to see Nana, Maxim and Beatrice’s grandmother. When they arrive, she seems very nice and approving of the narrator, praising her, complimenting Patel 2 her, and amicably conversing, but suddenly, something happens. With a blank stare, she asks the narrator who she is and asks where Rebecca is. This makes the narrator uneasy

so when Nana’s nurse suggests they leave in order not to see Nana like this, they easily comply and do so. In chapter sixteen, Maxim decides to revive the famous Manderley ball, an annual gathering at Manderley that Rebecca used to host and was a huge success. When the narrator does not know what to wear, Mrs. Danvers suggests that she wear the same thing as what a woman is wearing in a portrait that is hanging in Manderley. She also suggests that she gets a dressmaker to make it, so thinking it a friendly gesture, the narrator agrees. I definitely think there’s more to it, and Mrs. Danvers has a trick up her sleeve. More than likely, that dress will be the same as what Rebecca once wore, and wearing it to the ball, everyone there will be shocked, thinking of the narrator as cruel and heartless. And this is where I think the real story will unfold and we’ll really find out about what happened to Rebecca.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
