Abstract:

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