Product Description

Intertexuality (the reading of one text in terms of another) is a diverse practice. It is a central and prevalent subject in post-structuralist literary theory. This is the first book to address intertexuality as it relates specifically to interpretation of the Hebrew Bible. The contributors bring together lucid theoretical discussions and sophisticated interpretations from a variety of backgrounds, offering biblical scholars and students a helpful and thorough introduction to the issues and possibilities of tertexuality. This volume encourages the bringing together of texts in new and creative ways and lends greater clarity as discussions of intertextuality and biblical studies proceed.

Series: Literary Currents in Biblical Interpretation

Publisher's Description

Intertextuality (the reading of one text in terms of another) is a diverse practice. It is a central and prevalent subject in poststructuralist literary theory. Reading between Texts is the first book to address intertextuality as it relates specifically to interpretation of the Hebrew Bible. The contributors bring together lucid theoretical discussion and sophisticated interpretations from a variety of backgrounds, offering biblical scholars and students a helpful and thorough introduction to the issues and possibilities of intertextuality.

The Literary Currents in Biblical Interpretation series explores current trends within the discipline of biblical interpretation by dealing with the literary qualities of the Bible: the play of its language, the coherence of its final form, and the relationships between text and readers. Biblical interpreters are being challenged to take responsibility for the theological, social, and ethical implications of their readings. This series encourages original readings that breach the confines of traditional biblical criticism.
