Product Description

Understanding of biblical poetry---as with any type---is greatly enhanced by an earnest structural analysis. Berlin's in-depth yet accessible study examines parallelism, the chief rhetorical device of Hebrew verse. Her sensitive linguistic lens looks at the forces that provide remarkable amplification to this ancient genre and lend the Old Testament such unique powers of communication. 200 Pages. Softcover from Eerdmans.

Adele Berlin is Robert H. Smith Professor of Biblical Studies at the University of Maryland.

Publisher's Description

Understanding of biblical poetry is enhanced by the study of its structure. In this book Adele Berlin analyzes parallelism, a major feature of Hebrew poetry, from a linguistic perspective. This new edition of Berlin's study features an additional chapter, "The Range of Biblical Metaphors inSmikhut,"by late Russian linguist Lida Knorina. Berlin calls this addition "innovative and instructive to those who value the linguistic analysis of poetry." It is a fitting coda to Berlin's adept analysis.

Editorial Reviews

David Noel Freedman
(from the foreword)
"Adele Berlin writes felicitously, and she is a reliable Old Testament scholar. In this newly reprinted edition of The Dynamics of Biblical Parallelism, Berlin probes the linguistic phenomenon of parallelism. . . I am confident that the reader will readily agree with Berlin herself that the study of parallelism is, above all else, fun."

Jan Fokkelman
— Leiden University
"The twentieth century has seen important breakthroughs in many fields of the humanities. Roman Jakobson offered us creative and fascinating explorations at the interface of linguistics and poetics. Building on his work, Adele Berlin showed us how pervasive and many-sided the phenomenon of parallelism is in biblical poetry. It was a delight to follow her extensive array of well-chosen examples. We are lucky now to have Berlin's lucid language back in this revised edition."

Michael V. Fox
— University of Wisconsin-Madison
"I have used Adele Berlin's Dynamics of Biblical Parallelism in both my teaching and my research for twenty years, and I still find it fresh and enlightening. Berlin examines parallelism through a linguistic lens, showing it to be a system of forces that combine to give biblical poetry its special powers of communication. Her book is lucid, closely argued, and based on linguistic erudition and literary sensitivity."
