A companion to Reading Biblical Narrative, this volume provides an authoratative introduction and overview to biblical poetry. Fokkelman describes, in step-by-step fashion, how to understand the Bible's poetry. Full of examples, Reading Biblical Poetry makes available a holistic and integrative approach to understanding poetry found nowhere else.
"Fokkelman skillfully guides the reader through the process of reading biblical poetry. Accompanying a clear presentation of his method of analyzing structure and prosody are many insightful observations about the poem's language and meaning. Few books for the uninitiated reader capture as much sophisticated information in such an intelligible way."
