"In recent years, gender studies and feminist thinking have had a growing influence on the study of world literature. But only now, in this volume, is a range of studies devoted to the field of modern Hebrew and Yiddish literature. Here international scholars bring a diversity of approaches, perspectives, and themes to the works of women writers and to the representations of women in writing by men. Among the many writers discussed in the book are Esther Raab, Yocheved Bat Miriam, Celia Dropkin, Hayyim Nahman Bialik, A.B. Yehoshua, and Ahron Appelfeld." "In addition, three women novelists write about their own craft. Annotated bibliographies provide strong guidance for future research into gender issues." "Gender and Text is the indispensable resource for both scholars and general readers. Its translations and clarity of language appeal to all interested in Jewish literature and feminism."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
