Lugt, The Rhetorical Design of Isaiah 40-48/55 (Brill)

The Rhetorical Design of Isaiah 40-48/55

Zion's Incomparable Saviour and His Servants

Series: Oudtestamentische Studiën, Old Testament Studies, Volume: 82

Author: P. van der Lugt

In this volume, Pieter van der Lugt offers a comprehensive analysis of the rhetorical structure of Isaiah. As in his previous studies on the Book of Job and the Psalter the author demonstrates that classical Hebrew poetry displays a well-defined structure consisting of balanced main parts (cantos) and subdivision into strophes. This rhetorical starting point is of crucial importance for the delimitation of the individual poems in Isaiah 40-48 and in many cases determines their interpretation. Subsequently, it is demonstrated that the successive compositions form well-defined and coherent cycles of poems.
