Robert Alter provides a fresh interpetation of the Old Testament and a lucid, original account of how biblical poetry works.
Posted March 6, 2003
This work is an excellent analysis of the technical means of Biblical poetry .Alter explores Biblical parallelism , shows how the processes of specification and intensification of the meaning through parallelism provide a unique strength to Biblical poetry .Alter's love of the poetry and knowledge of it are deep.This is literary criticism at its best.
