Description
My intention in this paper is not to examine the conventions and techniques whereby biblical poetry is defined and ordered, but its capacity for subversion, its stylistic openness. The subject is the anti-poetic in poetry, its artlessness. The passages on which I focus may not perhaps be considered poetry: they are visions, communicated simply. Yet precisely as visions, reported barely, naively, they contribute to the poetics of Amos. What is the relation between the prophet's awe and linguistic beauty?1 How is the incommensurable accommodated in a language that touches on silence?
