Title: The Story of Eve
Description: United Kingdom, Picador. 1998, First Edition. (ISBN: 0330336991) Hard Cover with dust jacket, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. "According to Norris, the history of sexism can be illuminated through the evolving interpretation of the biblical story of Adam and Eve. Beginning her study with ancient Greek myths, she equates Eve with Pandora, whose curiosity brought evil into the world. Classical writers considered women to be troublemakers, cites from Old and New Testament and apocryphal writings, medieval works and those of more recent writers. Erudite but eminently accessible, Norris's account of how religious beliefs and cultural forces have affected prevailing views of women is an important addition to the literature of women's studies." CONDITION Black bds with Silver title (unworn) pp xvi 496 with b/w plates and nice wood block illus reproduced. Crisp copy with light edge toning. DJ unworn. Overweight. Very Good/Very Good.
