"Schor brings to life the complicated, passionate woman who left us our proudest national image. A work of great empathy an meticulous historical research."<br>-Kevin Baker, author of "Paradise Alley" <br>"In this luminous, enthralling biography, Esther Schor recovers one of the outstanding women of nineteenth-century letters, who while inventing her life as an American Jewish writer discovered a larger poetic mission for the entire nation."<br>-Sean Wilentz, author of "The Rise of American Democracy: Jefferson to Lincoln" <br>"Esther Schor, herself a poet of authentic distinction, has composed a very moving and highly useful biographical critique of Emma Lazarus, a permanent poet in American and in Jewish tradition."<br>-Harold Bloom, author of "The Western Canon: The Books and School of the Ages" <br>"It is a rare book indeed that so skillfully melds biography, literary analysis, and cultural history. In describing Emma Lazarus and her circle, Schor tells the story of American Jewry in the nineteenth century, paints a portrait of literary New York in one of its heydays, explicates many beautiful and long-neglected poems, and instills in us a canny affection for a subject who is forceful and sometimes overbearing but also brilliant and compassionate. Schor's prose is as lyrical and rich in images as the poetry she describes in this intimate, often touching volume."<br>-Andrew Solomon, author of "The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression"
