Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The author focuses on the unique literary tradition of 19th-century American Jewish women, whom she feels have been largely ignored. In a comprehensive scholarly work, Lichtenstein (English, Beloit Coll.) presents more than 25 of these authors, from Emma Lazarus to Edna Ferber. She treats the writers as subjects who had great difficulty in demonstrating the respectability of their American, Jewish, and female identities; it was their writing that gave them that respectability. Chapters include discussions of the mythic ideals and the realities of American and Jewish womanhood and the words and worlds of Lazarus. Taking into account their multiple loyalties, this book explores how these Jewish women created their own space and how we interpret their achievements. With a comprehensive bibliography, notes, and an index, this work is essential for scholars, women's and Jewish studies departments, and literary and historical studies.
