Eve's Journey traces the migration of several female images and feminine situations from their early appearances in Biblical writings to their incarnations in modern Hebraic literature. Focusing on the evolution of early female archetypes and prototypes, Nehama Aschkenasy uncovers the ancient roots of modern female characters, and traces the changing cultural perceptions of women in Hebraic letters.

To illustrate how the female character is a mirror of her times as well as a product of her creator's imagination, Aschkenasy draws on the vast body of Hebraic literature. These works, in addition to discussion of Biblical narratives, Midrashic sources, documents of the Jewish mystics, Hasidic tales, and modern Hebrew works, allow an understanding of the historical spectrum and metamorphosis that the female figure has experienced in her literary odyssey.
