Amy Levy: The Woman who Dared

SHS and Jewish Socialists’ Group joint meeting
Friday 27 May 2011
Nadia Valman, (Queen Mary, University of London); Christine Pullen, (author The Woman Who Dared: A biography of Amy Levy) and Emma Francis, (Warwick University) will speak on Amy Levy: The Woman who Dared.
In a short life Amy Levy produced a remarkable collection of poetry, fiction and journalism; radically freethinking and a fierce social critic, Amy sought to live as an independent woman and professional writer. A Jewish woman, she confronted the stifling prejudices of a male dominated and class ridden society; breaking free from her community, she moved in the radical circles of late 19th century London and was a friend of Eleanor Marx, Olive Schreiner and others; she knew George Bernard Shaw, William Morris and Oscar Wilde, who praised her “genius”.
Time: 7.00 p.m. Venue: Bishopsgate Institute, 230 Bishopsgate, London EC2 (opposite Liverpool Street Station). Admittance free. All welcome. Retiring collection
