Fragmented women : feminist (sub)versions of biblical narratives by J. Cheryl Exum( Book )

23 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the biblical narratives, women are usually minor characters in the stories of men. Fragments of women''s stories must be gleaned from the more cohesive stories of their fathers, husbands and sons. Fragmented Women begins with the premise that, to recover shards of women''s stories from androcentric texts like the Bible, it is necessary to step outside the ideology of the text, subverting the patriarchal perspective that has focused attention on the male characters. In this important new work, the author draws on contemporary feminist literary theory to critique the dominant male voice of th

Tragedy and biblical narrative : arrows of the Almighty by J. Cheryl Exum( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this study J. Cheryl Exum focuses on a neglected aspect of biblical narrative, its tragic dimension. Tragedy, she argues, poses questions about the elusive and necessary relationship of guilt, suffering, and evil that can only be resolved aesthetically, not thematically. The narratives discussed--the stories of Saul, of Jephthah, of the members of Saul's fated house, and of David--all grapple with the fact of human guilt, responsibility and accountability. They also
Song of songs : a commentary by J. Cheryl Exum( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This commentary foregrounds at every turn the poetic genius of the Song of Songs, one of the most elusive texts of the Hebrew Bible. J. Cheryl Exum locates that genius in the way the Song not only tells but shows its readers that love is as strong as death, thereby immortalizing love, as well as in the way the poet explores love's nature with a mature sensitivity to how being in love is different for the woman and the man. Many long-standing conundrums in the interpretation of the book are given persuasive solutions in Exum's verse-by-verse exegesis. This, however, is not atomistic commentary. The focus throughout is on the poetry of the book - the illusion of immediacy it creates; the blurring of distinctions between anticipation, enjoyment, and satisfaction; and the resistance to closure."--Jacket
