More Description

"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." --Library Journal

..." Lichtenstein has served the fields of American women's and Jewish history well... " --American Historical Review

"This is a fascinating, well-researched book." --Na'amat Woman

"A significant record of the relationship of gender and Jewish ethnicity to American literary studies." --Choice

The unique literary tradition of nineteenth-century American Jewish women has been largely ignored. Diane Lichtenstein considers more than twenty-five of these authors, including Emma Lazarus, Rebekah Hyneman, Penina Moise, and Emma Wolf.
