The author and her instances
Anita Diamant, author from the historic fictional novel, The Red Tent, is a devout Jewish-American surviving in Newtonville, Ma with her husband and daughter, Emilia. She has crafted five literature about modern Jewish existence, The Reddish Tent becoming her initially novel.

Form, structure and storyline
The Reddish colored Tent is organized within a seemingly challenging yet wonderfully simple approach. There are 3 main areas; Dinah's mothers' story, her childhood, and her existence in Egypt. Each is additional divided into chapters.
Although the history is broken into sections, the plot moves along intact. The exposition involves Jacob's entrance and succeeding marriages to Leah, Rachel, Zilpah and Bilhah. Twelve of 13 children are born, including Dinah, narrator in support of daughter. Dinah grows up helping her aunt/mother Rachel, who also brings her to the city of Shechem.
Your initial incident arises when Simon and Levi, two of Dinah's oldest brothers, enter the associated with Shechem and murder all the resident guys, including Dinah's beloved hubby, Shalem. Cursing her complete family, a pregnant Dinah is delivered to Egypt by simply Shalem's mother, Re-nefer.
Inside the rising action the child comes into the world, a boy whom Re-nefer brands Re-mose and raises as her own. He turns into a superior Egypt scribe, and is also eventually given to the king's right-hand-man.
In a climactic paradox, Re-mose's company turns out to be Paul, Dinah's youngest brother. Inescapable fact regarding Shalem's homicide is showed Re-mose, who also in turn promises to avenge his dad's death about Joseph's head. He is foiled by Dinah, who talks him to take out to the north. Joseph and Dinah attend the death of Jacob in the dropping action, both equally forgiving the wrongs fully commited against these people in their father's name. The story concludes with Dinah's fatality.
Point of View
Diamant has Dinah effectively let her know story coming from three diverse narrative viewpoints. The bulk of the novel can be related by Dinah in first person, providing a private take a look at growing up and personal tragedy: "It seemed that I was the last person alive inside the world" (Diamant 203). Dinah tells the storyline that states was mangled in the bible.
Understandably, Dinah's relation of her mothers' stories is completed in third person story, since your woman herself was not yet delivered.
