Norris's other famous novel is McTeague, the story of a mild-mannered dentist and his wife whose lives are gradually destroyed by an all-consuming greed. Part suspenseful thriller, part insightful psychological study; it makes for a gripping read. As for the third novel, the obvious choice would have been to include The Pit, a sequel of sorts to the Octopus, and probably Norris's third best-known work.

The Story of Eve by Pamela Norris Picador pounds 20. Joan Smith londe. Sunday 13 December 1998 01:02. As well as making connections between Eve and figures from pagan and Jewish myth, Norris spends some time in this section of the book examining ancient law and its effect on women's lives. The connection with Eve is not always apparent, and while there is interesting material about the lifestyle of women in the period, Norris's style veers unevenly between chatty and didactic.

Though I will raise some questions about organization and content, let me start by saying that this is a valuable book, essential reading for anyone interested in tracing the ways in which the story of Eve has influenced Western understandings of gender. The seven chapters of the first section consider early Jewish and Christian uses of the story of Eve; in section two, Norris discusses ways in which writers and artists since the Middle Ages have depicted Eve.

It was almost like new, only the pages were a little yellowed. I am still very satisfied with it. Thank you

As I read this book I kept alternating between being fascinated and appalled. I would ask myself, "Were men really that afraid of women?" Ms. Norris does a wonderful job of tracing through how the story of Eve has been used to create and justify various attitudes toward women in Hebrew and Christian societies with a side trip to look at the Greeks and how they became part of the mix. In many ways it is even more interesting to see what happened as women got access to and were able to leave their own written tradition.
There is the temptation in this sort of work to write about the most extreme views that are floating around rather than the ones that were the most influencial. Ms. Norris is aware of this and I think she avoids it. Many of the most extreme quotes and stories were from people that I already knew something about such as Hesiod, Ben Sira and Tertullian.
