A Manual of Hebrew Poetics


Pontifical Biblical Institute 2000

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


A Manual of Hebrew Poetics is a helpful guide for analyzing Hebrew poetics. The volume’s primary purpose is not to serve as a source of information about facts and authors but, rather, to initiate the reader into the stylistic analysis of poetry. Everything that this manual contains by way of definition, description, or classification is given as a means to doing analysis. For this reason, many of the chapters and sections either begin or end with an example of analysis. The manual is not primarily a reference book but, instead, a volume of initiation into the practice of analysis. Among the poetic techniques discussed are sound and sonority, rhythm, imagery, figures of speech, dialogue and monologue, development, and composition.

With the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in A Manual of Hebrew Poetics are tagged and appear on mouse-over, and all Scripture passages link to your favorite Bible translation in your library. With Passage Guides, Word Studies, and a wealth of other tools, the Logos edition of A Manual of Hebrew Poetics is designed to enhance your study of the BHS.
