Eternally Eve is not an exhaustive history of images of Eve through the ages but an organized set of feminist readings and intertextual explorations of carefully selected works. English, Hebrew, and Yiddish; her analyses are nuanced and often persua-sive. The book fulfills its own stated feminist goals-indeed the author’s skills at times seem to exceed the demands of this kind of feminist rubric. Regardless, the literary analyses stand on their own and together serve as a provocative but sensible guide and annotator of Jewish texts in a variety of periods. The story of Eve eating a fruit from the tree of good and evil and the story of her creation are the central biblical texts in which Eve appears, in-spiring a wealth of literary and visual art.
For both Judaism and Christianity, these stories involving Eve have for centuries been entangled with the religious and social construction of gender.
Lerner’s task is, at first glance, the more daunting for no figure in Western culture, including Adam, seems as overdetermined as Eve. Yet Linett’s subject is also challenging: of the four words in her book’s title, the only one not subject to critical controversy is and. Spanning religion and literature, Eternally Eve will appeal to a broad readership. Those well-educated in Jewish religious texts will be familiar with the biblical and at least some of the talmudic and midrashic passages that Lerner cites. Readers acquainted with Phyllis Trible’s and Daniel Boyarin’s works on re-visioning biblical and rabbinic intepretation will be prepared for Lerner’s questioning of time-worn assumptions. 1 However, the rabbinic texts and modern analyses are likely to be new and probably illuminating to everyone else.

Feb 20, 2019- In Judaism, the Midrash (Hebrew: מדרש; plural midrashim) is the body of homiletic stories told by Jewish rabbinic sages to explain passages in the Tanakh. Midrash is a method of interpreting biblical stories that goes beyond simple distillation of religious, legal, or moral teachings. It fills in gaps left in the biblical narrative regarding events and personalities that are only hinted at. It contains both halakah and haggadah, revealing the divine presence of the eternal Torah in the text.
Lerner argues that Eve has been the prism through which Western society has viewed women and thus determined their roles and rights. She brings her background as a scholar of comparative literature, a Conservative Jew, and a feminist to the study of these texts, looking for ways in which to reassess long-held beliefs about what the texts in fact say about Eve and thus all women. The author’s combination of the work of such poets as Linda Pastan, Itzik Manger, and Kim Chernin with rabbinic material presents a refreshingly creative way to study biblical text
