Understanding of biblical poetry, like any other, is enhanced by the study of its structure. In "The Dynamics of Biblical Parallelism", Adele Berlin analyzes parallelism, a major feature of biblical poetry, from a linguistic perspective. Scholarly yet not overly technical, "The Dynamics of Biblical Parallelism" will enhance readers' understanding of biblical poetry.
Adele Berlin is Robert H. Smith Professor of BiblicalStudies at the University of Maryland. The author of threebiblical commentaries and Biblical Poetry throughMedieval Jewish Eyes, she is also coeditor of TheJewish Study Bible (Oxford), which received a NationalJewish Book Award in 2004.
