Project #13005 - Answer a few questions from the book "The Red Tent"

My class is reading the book "The Red Tent", it's a great book but I've been very busy lately. I have this plus two other assignments and I just need help. Here are the questions:

 

1.      Consider the marital dynamics of Jacob’s family.  He has four wives.  Think about the wives’ relationships with each other and relationships with Jacob.  What is your opinion of the relationships between the wives in this family?  What seem to be the advantages/disadvantages (for men, for women, and for children) of a man having multiple wives in the particular time/place in which the narrative takes place?

2.      Dinah has four mothers.  Is her relationship with each mother the same?  In what way are the relationships different/similar?

3.      Who is Inna?  What is her relationship to Jacob’s family?  Why might she be an important asset to the family?

4.      Describe Dinah’s relationship with her father, Jacob (Are they close?  Does she spend time with him?).  Is Dinah close with any of her brothers?  If so, which one(s) and why?  How much time do we see her spending with her brothers?

5.      How do Dinah’s mothers react when Jacob announces major changes (moving location, meeting Esau and so on) that affect the entire family?  Does Jacob consult his wives or ask their opinion?  What does Jacob seem to expect from his wives in this regard?

6.      When Dinah visits her grandmother, Rebecca, she is traumatized by an incident between Rebecca and one of Esau’s daughters, Tabea.  According to the narrative, why did Rebecca react so violently?  What was at stake for her?

 

7.      What is the significance of the Red Tent ceremony to Jacob’s wives (and his daughter, Dinah)?  How does he react when he’s told about the ceremony from one of his daughters-in-law?  Why might he react in such a way?  What is at stake for him as a patriarch?  What is the effect on the family, his wives, on Dinah?
