Job the Silent: A Study in Historical Counterpoint
Oxford University Press, 1998 - 305 Seiten
This study of the Book of Job argues that it was intended as a parody of the stereotypical, righteous sufferer, portrayed as patient and silent. This example is used to demonstrate how texts become separated from the intentions of their authors, and can evolve quite different meanings for readers.
