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
    Der Report der Magd von 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
    Die Walfängerin von 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 von Margaret Atwood (Anonymer Nutzer)
    Anonymer Nutzer: 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.

    Zipporah, Wife of Moses von Marek Halter (joririchardson)
  5. 10
    Miss Garnet und der Engel von Venedig von Salley Vickers (KayCliff)
    KayCliff: Both are novels featuring Old Testament stories.
  6. 10
    The Garden of Ruth von 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 von Jeanne Williams (juniperSun)
    juniperSun: both have women passing on their spirituality/goddess knowledge secretly

    Das Lied der Rosen von Anita Amirrezvani (elbakerone)
    elbakerone: Another beautifully written historical fiction with a focus around mother daughter relationships.

    Wisdom's Daughter: A Novel of Solomon and Sheba von India Edghill (BookshelfMonstrosity)

"The Red Tent" by Anita Diamant is a wonderful, organic read. The story-telling is excellent, the descriptions of the era and setting are evocative, and the societies she writes about seem well-researched and well-constructed. I read "The Red Tent" with the same intensity and love with which I read "One Hundred Years of Solitude." Just like Gabriel Garcia Marquez made me feel like a citizen of Macondo, Diamant made me feel like a citizen of this ancient world.

The book follows Dinah as she narrates her mother's life, her own life in Palestine Canaan, and her life in Egypt. She is born to a polygamous family where she finds comfort with her aunts who gather in a red tent as part of ceremonies during menstrual periods. Despite sexism, her life growing up is mostly comforting and carefree in the pastoral world where she lives. Dinah eventually follows an aunt who is apprenticing to be a midwife. When she tries to marry a wealthy city-dweller, her life is unjustly upended and she is sent to pharaonic Egypt.

The male characters are certainly one-dimensional foils, as other critics have said, but they are not central to the story and their moving in and out of the narrative seems quite natural. The women in the story, like Dinah, Rachel, and Re-Nefer, are wonderful, complex characters.

At the risk of dismissing the characters, what I loved about "The Red Tent" was the setting. Diamant readily admits to fictionalizing a lot of the setting, but all of it comes off as true. The preindustrial world is described organically, whether the author describes the hills of Canaan or the urban centers of Egypt. Readers tour nomadic tents, marketplaces, and birthing rooms. More interesting is Diamant's presentation of religion at the time. The Abrahamic God lives in a world of other powerful gods, each of whom are treated like totems. Superstitions are grounded and logical, but sometimes disturbing, like when Dinah has her first period and is then ritually penetrated by her aunts who use a stone. Nevertheless, the worlds Diamant creates are consistent with my limited knowledge of Ancient Semitic religions.

Although the author might disagree with me, I don't think the book was written for my demographic - a 40-something white man. Central to the book are the themes of motherhood and sisterhood, concepts that Diamant does not use in biological terms. Rather, mothers and sisters are created through social bonds and circumstance. "The Red Tent" makes motherhood and womanhood synonymous, as women who cannot have children fall down the social ladder in the societies Diamant depicts. I am curious to know women who do not have children think of how motherhood is represented here, or how women who do not have sister-like relationships with other women think of the book. ( )

I read this for a challenge called "Life" this month-how does it fit?

50 pages in we have read about 4 sisters, destined to father children with the same man, the introduction of The Red Tent,(which is an undeniable metaphor for life), and the youngest sister Bilhah entering The Red Tent and embracing how to rejoice in the dark of the moon and how to join into the circle of life.

Whew! Sounds like life to me!

This is the story of Dinah, the only daughter of Jacob. In the bible she barely gets a mentioned-here she tells the story of her life. Jacob arrives one day at their camp and one after another takes the sisters into his tent, 2 becoming his wives. Anita Diamant paints such a beautiful picture of the time Dinah spends with her 4 mothers and the love and lessons she learns from them. After years of living and loving Jacob the time comes for him and the sisters and their brood of children to leave and strike out as their own tribe. Along the way, Dinah meets her Grandmother, her cousins, royalty and or course, like in any good story some bad things occur and through it all Dinah grows with each love and sorrow.

In the end this a story about women protecting and making other women strong. If you are able to overlook what you know(and perhaps believe) from your religious teachings, than I think you will enjoy the story. (And you must remember it is a fictional story-if you can't do that, don't read it, it will anger you).

the story of Dinah, daughter of Jacob
  ritaer | Jul 7, 2021 |
I appreciate any efforts to provide a story and voice to the marginalized women of the Bible, these characters whose stories are the victims of an extremely patriarchal and misogynistic worldview. And Anita Diamant does a good job of rounding out Dinah and reimagining a new context for her tale, while also giving her some semblance of agency (though extremely limited and blessed by a lot of luck).

But it was all just...fine. The writing is uncomplicated, though it does have some moments of beauty. The themes are clear and easily unpacked: motherhood, sisterhood, the various forms of love. I think I was hoping for a little more "oomph" that just wasn't there.

Added bonus: I do have a greater understanding/context for The Ceremony in The Handmaid's Tale and how grossly the Bible is misinterpreted in Gilead. ( )

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.
