Narrative Art in Genesis. Specimens of Stylistic and Structural Analysis
Jan P. Fokkelman
2. Aufl. 1991, 244 Seiten
Umschlagtext: ""This groundbreaking work of literary criticism has become something of a classic since its first appearance in 1975, when it was greeted by likeminded scholars as an inspiration. At the time of writing, the immanent, synchronic analysis of the text was still a comparatively neglected entreprise. In a remarkably fresh and new way Fokkelman here investigates the 'final form' of the text of Genesis, demonstrating from a number of well-chosen samples that the work is a 'literary work of art', and showing in detail how its various levels of structure and style work together to create the compelling and ingenious narrative of the final text."
