Overview

The Possibility of Janus Parallelism in the Book of Mormon by Jeff Lindsay

Janus parallelism, a tool evident in ancient Hebrew poetry, is documented at some length by Scott B. Noegel in Janus Parallelism in the Book of Job, which I recently reviewed. Since the authorship of Job predates the removal of the Lehites from Jerusalem, this tool may have been available to writers in the Book of Mormon. While we do not have the original text to analyze wordplays in the original language, it may be possible to apply some of the cases considered by Noegel to find remnants of related "polysensuous" wordplays that might have been present in the original text or to consider other previously proposed wordplays that may include a Janus-like aspect.
