Summary
Do we confront in these three characters feminist heroines or patriarchally idealised stooges? From the worldly Esther to the piously devout Susanna via the militant widow, these female figures appear both as meticulously sculpted individuals and as metaphors for a Jewish Community under threat. The wealth of antiguity in these characters is exposed to a wide range of perceptions in this marvellous collection
