Sarna Author Wisse Author Poet Schor a professor of English at Princeton reveals Lazarus as a prodigy who briefly became the prot g of Ralph Waldo Emerson and later corresponded with Henry James and Robert Browning; a champion of Russian Jewish refugees, despite being a member of the highly assimilated Sephardic aristocracy ; and a Zionist before Zionism existed. In Schor's handling, Lazarus comes across more as a strong-willed, philanthropic woman who could write than as an artist driven to activism.
Schor's text is marred by a couple of anachronisms, such as a reference to Google, and her prose can turn purple she describes the morning of Lazarus's death as "sunless, strung with cloudy pearls". For all that, while readers may not embrace Lazarus's poetry it bears all the ponderous, orotund tendencies of its time they will come to agree with Schor's assessment that Lazarus was a woman we might have liked to know.

Overview Winner of the National Jewish Book Award The definitive biography of the poet whose sonnet "The New Colossus" appears on the base of the Statue of Liberty, welcoming immigrants to their new home. She was a woman so far ahead of her time that we are still scrambling to catch up with her—-a feminist, a Zionist, and an internationally famous Jewish American writer before these categories even existed.
