Pormenores da obra

The Red Tent por Anita Diamant

  1. 120
    The Handmaid's Tale por Margaret Atwood (wosret, Kaelkivial)
    Kaelkivial: Both stories of strong women who resist (in one form or another) the system that holds them down. Both books fairly fast paced and gripping; acts of violence and loss scattered throughout.
  2. 41
    Ahab's Wife por Sena Jeter Naslund (sweetbug)
    sweetbug: Both books take minor female characters from great works and create a larger story for them. The two books also deal with similar themes including women who challenge gender rolls and the relationships between mothers (or surrogate mothers) and daughters.
  3. 20
    The Penelopiad: The Myth of Penelope and Odysseus por Margaret Atwood (Utilizador anónimo)
    Utilizador anónimo: The two novels convey the same idea of reclaiming the story of a marginal woman from a great male narrative, telling the story from a new, feminine perspective.
  4. 20
    Zipporah, Wife of Moses por Marek Halter (joririchardson)
  5. 10
    Miss Garnet's Angel por Salley Vickers (KayCliff)
    KayCliff: Both are novels featuring Old Testament stories.
  6. 10
    The Garden of Ruth por Eva Etzioni-Halevy (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: The Red Tent and The Garden of Ruth provide female-centered interpretations of Biblical stories. These books are full of political and familial drama, centered in the early ages of Judaism.
  7. 00
    The Cave Dreamers por Jeanne Williams (juniperSun)
    juniperSun: both have women passing on their spirituality/goddess knowledge secretly
  8. 00
    The Blood of Flowers por Anita Amirrezvani (elbakerone)
    elbakerone: Another beautifully written historical fiction with a focus around mother daughter relationships.
  9. 11
    Mary, Called Magdalene por Margaret George (meggyweg)
  10. 00
    Wisdom's Daughter: A Novel of Solomon and Sheba por India Edghill (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Wisdom's Daughter and The Red Tent bring the Bible to life for modern readers through their historically detailed and emotional retelling of two stories of love and family honor. Additionally, both are viewed and interpreted through a women's perspective.… (mais)
  11. 01
    In the Shadow of the Ark por Anne Provoost (joririchardson)
    joririchardson: Both books have a similar atmosphere and setting, and both are based on biblical events.
  12. 02
    The Gilded Chamber por Rebecca Kohn (themephi)
  13. 02
    Not the End of the World por Geraldine McCaughrean (SandSing7)

Great book. ( )

the story of Dinah, daughter of Jacob
  ritaer | Jul 7, 2021 |
I appreciate any efforts to provide a story and voice to the marginalized women of the Bible, these characters whose stories are the victims of an extremely patriarchal and misogynistic worldview. And Anita Diamant does a good job of rounding out Dinah and reimagining a new context for her tale, while also giving her some semblance of agency (though extremely limited and blessed by a lot of luck).

But it was all just...fine. The writing is uncomplicated, though it does have some moments of beauty. The themes are clear and easily unpacked: motherhood, sisterhood, the various forms of love. I think I was hoping for a little more "oomph" that just wasn't there.

Added bonus: I do have a greater understanding/context for The Ceremony in The Handmaid's Tale and how grossly the Bible is misinterpreted in Gilead. ( )

The Red Tent tells the Biblical stories of Jacob, his wives Rachel and Leah, and their twelve sons, including Joseph with his coat of many colors. The story is told from the point of view of Dinah, Jacob's only daughter.

The Bible tells the story of the rise of a patriarchal religion. The Red Tent tells the same story, but focuses on the women who continued to follow their own matriarchal rituals, revering their own gods, gathering monthly in the red tent to bleed and care for each other. The Red Tent tells the stories that male-focused history ignores. The women celebrate menstruation and childbirth and love, and mourn the dead and the unhappy childless. They cook and bake and take joy in their duties and their companionship. It is wonderful to read the story of women going about their everyday lives, and how they play a role in the big stories we are used to hearing.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable read, but I don't think it added to or changed anything about my interpretation of the Biblical stories. ( )

Just...no...this book has all the makings of something I should really enjoy. I don't know why but it just felt very forced and sort of pointless and...really, it didn't fix the bible fiction or make it any better...the writing is good (?) but I feel like the actually bible has more interesting characters and I don't even like the OT...

The Red Tent instantly drew me in from its very first paragraph. The narrative voice, that of Dinah, reminded me a lot of that of Margaret Atwood’s wonderful Penelopiad which I read last year. It was strong but slightly melancholy and conveyed the same idea of reclaiming the story of a marginal woman from a great male narrative, telling the story from a new, feminine perspective and revealing what ‘really’ happened.

The red tent of the title is the separate tent set aside for the women where they go while menstruating to keep apart from the men. The Red Tent then is a very appropriate title as the book focused almost exclusively on feminine concerns: becoming a woman, giving birth and finding a husband. I appreciated this insight into their secret world and I liked the idea of telling a masculine story to recentre it around the women.

If you want to understand any woman you must first ask about her mother and then listen carefully. Stories about food show a strong connection. Wistful silences demonstrate unfinished business. The more a daughter knows the details of her mother’s life—without flinching or whining—the stronger the daughter.
The men clustered around the baby and placed the tools of the scribe into his little hands. His fingers curled around new reed brushes, and he grasped a circular dish upon which his inks were mixed. He waved a scrap of papyrus in both hands like a fan.
Re-nefer scoured the markets for ... a perfect box in which to put his brushes. She commissioned a sculptor to carve a slate for mixing ink.
He was captivated by the sights of the journey ... he directed my eyes at the sails in the wind, at the harmony of the rowers' oars ... a stand of papyrus that looked like a field of copper in the setting sun.
Maybe you guessed that there was more to me than the voiceless cipher in the text. Maybe you heard it in the music of my name: the first vowel high and clear, as when a mother calls to her child at dusk; the second sound soft, for whispering secrets on pillows. Dee-nah.
