The Laughter of Sarah

Full Product Description

This book plays with the notion of the laughter of delight, and the way in which it has gone largely unheard in the Western interpretative tradition. The scope of the work stretches from the ancient to the modern, but it has a consistent leitmotif: the delighted laughter of the matriarch Sarah in the book of Genesis, when she gives birth to her son Isaac. This laughter is "heard" first through biblical commentaries, then through twentieth-century theorists of laughter; finally, contemporary feminist theorists are used to help realize the radical openness of the laughter of delight.

The Laughter of Sarah by Catherine Conybeare was published by Palgrave Macmillan in September 2013. The ISBN for The Laughter of Sarah is 9781137373113.
