Description

Using Homeric and Miltonic studies as a model, this study provides a literary analysis of the many similes occuring in the prophetic literature of ancient Israel. In addition to examining the various grammatical ways that similes are expressed in Hebrew, the text addresses the literary forms in which similes appear, the sources from which prophetic images imerge, the structure of similes within the prophetic literature, and the function of similes in context.
