Read full description of the books:
I liked this book . Chernin looks at the Eve story inside out, with large swaths of Freudian theory, with histories of matriarchal societies, and with the Gnostic stories about creation. One of her central ideas is that, like Eve, women today have been taught that they are less-than in a patriarchal society. We are told that eating from the tree of knowledge was sin. But her theory is that Eve had to eat the fruit, to break from patriarchal control, to connect with the goddess in her, to become the powerful woman she is. I am grossly understating this, but you get the idea perhaps.
This is a roundabout, odd book, rife with Freud (she upends the many penis theories of Freud and postulates a breast theory) Nevertheless, interesting and oddly heartening.
