Description - Countertraditions in the Bible by Ilana Pardes

In this book, Illana Pardes explores the tense dialogue between dominant patriarchal discourses of the Bible and counter female voices. Pardes studies women's plots and subplots dreams and pursuits, uncovering the diverse and at all times conflicting figuration of femininity in biblical texts. She also sketches the ways in which antipatriarchal elements intermingle with other repressed elements in the Bible: polytheistic traditions, skeptical voices, and erotic longings.
