Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0231105517, Paperback)

Academic literary criticism can often be a tough read. Luckily, this is not the case with Ruth Vanita's Sappho and the Virgin Mary, a compelling look at how these twin images of sex and celibacy--both outside the world of men--have brought the idea and meaning of lesbianism to British writing. Vanita has a likable style that makes the literature she explicates--Keats, the Brontes, Christina Rossetti, E. M. Forster, George Eliot--live again in a new light. Beautifully argued and intelligently written, Sappho and the Virgin Mary surprises us on every page, making us reexamine previous assumptions in a new light.
