Title: The Book of Job in Form
Subtitle: A Literary Translation with Commentary
Written By: Jan P. Fokkelman
URL: http://www.brill.nl/book-job-form
Series Title: Studia Semitica Neerlandica
Description:

"The Book of Job in Form" presents to the reader a platform for a personal and
intensive encounter with a great work of art. Its bilingual centre offers the text in
Hebrew and English, and shows the forty poems in their original form, in 412
strophes and 165 stanzas. The commentary points out how these proportions
and the remarkable precision of the poet (who counted syllables on all text
levels) affect the thematics of the book, so that the portrait of the hero can be
redrawn; his stubbornly defended integrity meets vindication and his last words,
generally misunderstood, require a positive understanding. The poetry and its
slim framework in prose are a unified composition which deserves a synchronic
approach.
