Prophecy, Poetry and Hosea


Sheffield Academic Press 1996

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The books of the Latter Prophets have traditionally been treated as persuasive speeches, and interpreted according to their rhetoric. At the same time, interpreters recognize the poetic form of much prophecy. This study takes up the notion of the “prophet” as “poet”, focusing on word-play in Hosea and on the lyrical plot of that book—the case is made for treating Hosea as a stark, full-length poem of inexhaustible power.
