A theory's worth is proportional to its ability to elucidate the data in hand. The descriptive model advanced in the essay entitled "Retaining and Transcending the Classical Description of Ancient Hebrew Verse" is meant to describe the way ancient Hebrew poetry works. I support that claim by means of analyses of specific poems in a series of posts which follow this one.
By analysis is meant first and foremost an elucidation of prosodic structure. Attention is also given to the phenomenon of parallelism in its multiple dimensions. Translations of the worked examples are provided.
I offer first of all a programmatic essay and analysis of Isaiah 1:2-20. See the post entitled "The Great Arraignment: Isaiah 1:2-20."
Preliminary analyses of Isaiah 5:1-7 and Psalm 137 follow. See "The Song of the Vineyard: Isaiah 5:1-7" and "By the Rivers of Babylon: Psalm 137."
The prosodic structure hypothesis employed by linguists provides the framework for analysis in an essay on Lamentations 1-5. See "In Search of Prosodic Domains in Ancient Hebrew Verse: Lamentations 1-5 and the Prosodic Structure Hypothesis."
A programmatic essay and analysis of Isaiah 40:1-11 follows. See "'Give comfort, give comfort, my people! - your God says': Isaiah 40:1-11."
Preliminary analyses of Psalm 104, Song of Songs 1:2-14, Jonah 2:3-10, Psalms 111-112, Psalm 2, Psalm 6, Zechariah 9:9, and Isaiah 2:21-2:5 come next. See "A Hymn in Praise of a Provisioning God: Psalm 104," "'May He Kiss Me with Kisses of his Mouth': Song of Songs 1:2-14," "In Praise of a Deed of Deliverance: Jonah 2:3-10, "An Acrostic Diptych: Psalms 111-112," "The Rule of Yahweh and His Anointed: Psalm 2," "A Prayer of Supplication: Psalm 6," "On the Interpretation of Zechariah 9:9," and "Come, Let us Walk in Yahweh's Light: Isaiah 1:21-2:5."
