Item description for The Earth Mourns: Prophetic Metaphor and Oral Aesthetic (Academia Biblica (Society of Biblical Literature) (Paper)) by Katherine Murphey Hayes...
This book brings current research on oral traditional poetry to bear on a recurrent biblical prophetic metaphor: the mourning earth. Tracing persistence and flexibility in phraseological and thematic patterning within a set of nine prophetic compositions, the study explores in each passage the particular expression and literary impact of the metaphor and its attendant themes and motifs. Since consideration is given to the diachronic dimensions of the nine texts, the study serves as an illustration of the operation of an oral or oral-derived aesthetic within the biblical prophetic traditions over a range of historical settings as well as prophetic genres. Paperback edition is available from the Society of Biblical Literature (www.sbl-site.org).
