Explorations in Sights and Sounds
The republication of Anzia Yezierska's Red Ribbon on a White Horse, with an afterword by her daughter, Louise Henriksen, is an important event in two respects: first, it represents another step in the rediscovery of a significant writer whose work deals with the experience of immigrant Jewish women at the turn of the twentieth century. Second, it is a valuable document for information on that period of mass migration. Scholars concerned with ethnic literature, as well as those previously unfamiliar with Yezierska's works, will find here interesting insights into the problems and pressures of the immigrants.
