The story of Dinah, a tragic character from the Bible whose great love, a prince, is killed by her brother, leaving her alone and pregnant. The novel traces her life from childhood to death, in the process examining sexual and religious practices of the day, and what it meant to be a woman.
  1. 120
    The Handmaid's Tale de 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 de 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 de Margaret Atwood (Usuari anònim)
    Usuari anònim: 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 de Marek Halter (jordantaylor)
  5. 10
    Miss Garnet's Angel de Salley Vickers (KayCliff)
    KayCliff: Both are novels featuring Old Testament stories.
  6. 10
    The Garden of Ruth de 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 de Jeanne Williams (juniperSun)
    juniperSun: both have women passing on their spirituality/goddess knowledge secretly
  8. 00
    The Blood of Flowers de Anita Amirrezvani (elbakerone)
    elbakerone: Another beautifully written historical fiction with a focus around mother daughter relationships.
  9. 11
    Mary, Called Magdalene de Margaret George (meggyweg)
  10. 00
    Wisdom's Daughter: A Novel of Solomon and Sheba de 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.… (més)
  11. 01
    In the Shadow of the Ark de Anne Provoost (jordantaylor)
    jordantaylor: Both books have a similar atmosphere and setting, and both are based on biblical events.

    The Gilded Chamber de Rebecca Kohn (themephi)

    Not the End of the World de Geraldine McCaughrean (SandSing7)

This was so good. I cant belive I am only reading it now. ( )

It is a biblical story following Dinah from the Book of Genesis. It is a feminist retelling of her story and that of her mothers, the four wives of Jacob.

The only familiarity I had with this era of the Bible was Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Even though it's not a Christmas story, for some reason my family and I, when I was growing up, always went to see a stage performance of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which was always put on in December where we lived, so I always associated it with Christmas.

But what I didn't know until I read this book and read more about this book is that Joseph had a sister. In the play and in the movie version with Donny Osmond, Joseph only has brothers. But apparently in the Bible he has a sister, who is completely ignored in all versions of the musical that I'm aware of, which is especially infuriating because it's a crime that the brothers do to Dinah by murdering her husband that causes them to be cursed. So it was a little heart-wrenching to know that a story I grew up loving and seeing every year completely cut out both the sister and the multiple wives of Jacob.

But it was nice to have them focused on in this book, and the book was great. ( )

Had to read for a book club. I'm regretting choosing it because it's so lady-centric that it will probably alientate any male reader. So much birthing, oh god.
I had to go and look up the story of Jacob because I know nothing about the bible. It was interesting to hear this sad tale told from a woman's perspective.
Mostly I was just really glad to be living in the modern era. So many women lost their lives in childbirth. So many babies died. Ugh.
I wanted to know how much of this was rooted in historical fact and how much Diamant made up because there was some CRAZY stuff in here about how they worshiped and first menstruation rituals and what not. ( )

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.
