The rebirth of of a woman of substance
Emma Lazarus has become a remote name remembered by her powerful words supporting the Statue of Liberty, the sign post for our freedom. Esther Schor, captures Emma's full humanity, enormous intellectual capacity and ardent passion for the plight of immigrants in the late 19th century with an elequoent and very personal style that brings a remote historical figure into focus in our current age. We enjoy the closeness of her relationships to prominent intellectual figures of her day, her independent spirit, her juxtaposition in New York's Gilded age as an elite Jewish social figure not fully accepeted by the christian world in which she lived. Fascinating reading and a beautiflly written biography.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
