Product Description

Emma Lazarus's most famous poem gave a voice to the Statue of Liberty, but her remarkable life has remained a mystery until now. She was awoman so far ahead of her timewe are still scrambling to catch up with her-a feminist, a Zionist, and an internationally famous Jewish writerbefore these categories even existed.

In this groundbreaking biography, Schor argues persuasivelyfor Emma Lazarus's place in history as a poet, an cctivist, and a prophet of thev world we all inhabit today-a world that she helped to invent.
