This volume explores the aesthetic dimensions of biblical poetry,
offering close readings of poems across the Hebrew Bible/Old
Testament. Composed of essays by fifteen leading scholars of
biblical poetry, it offers creative and insightful close readings
of poems from across the canon of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament
(Psalms, wisdom poetry, Song of Songs, prophecy, and poetry in
biblical narrative). The essays build on recent advances in our
understanding of biblical poetry and engage a variety of
theoretical perspectives and current trends in the study of
literature. They demonstrate the rewards of careful attention to
textual detail, and they provide models of the practice of close
reading for students, scholars, and general readers. They also
highlight the rich aesthetic value of the biblical poetic corpus
and offer reflection on the nature of poetry itself as a meaningful
and enduring form of art.
