Patterns in the Early Poetry of Israel

This monograph consisted of a series of fresh studies of several biblical Hebrew poems that are related by virtue of the antiquity generally accorded them. These studies found their unity, also, in a method of investigation that aimed at the elucidation of the individual texts through an examination of a particular stylistic device found to have been employed in them. No claim is made for this "approach" as being the sole legitimate procedure allowable in reading these or any other biblical Hebrew poems. It is strongly suggested, however, that a greater appreciation of the Hebrew poet's craft may thereby be had and that the reader may thus find himself afforded an opportunity for acquiring a clearer recognition of the individual poem's form and content. [From SAOC 32, "Prologue," p. 1, by Gervitz]
