Book Overview

To see beauty as the face of love rather than the arbitrary gift of fortune is . . . to enlarge our sense of life's possibilities.

A woman becomes beautiful when she believes that her appearance reflects her essential self. Ellen Zetzel Lambert explores the connection of physical appearance to self-esteem, through photography, literature, and life experience.

very helpful and relevant book for women

Ms. Lambert does a great job examining the beauty question in the post-feminist age, namely, what is the appropriate role of personal appearance in the life of women? She avoids oversimplification and pat answers, and takes relevant examples from classic and modern literature to corroborate her ideas. This book really helped me to think through an issue which I deal with on a daily basis but rarely discuss with anyone, and which is tied to most women's fundamental sense of self-esteem and happiness.
