Summary
This study examines Eve as a prototype in religion, mythology, art, history, and literature, finding in the vagaries of the evolving story of the first woman the key to Western attitudes toward all women through the centuries. By showing just what the image of "the Mother of All the Living" has suffered at the hands of "the shapers of the Eve tradition," J.A. Phillips reveals the essential attitudes toward women that are our heritage.--From publisher description
