Applying the principles both of poetic (based on the work of D. N. Freedman) and rhetorical (based on the work of J. Muilenberg) analysis, Bartelt examines in detail the style and structure of Isaiah 2-12. He finds that the structure of this segment of Isaiah is based on 800 eight-syllable lines, with the core of the section the so-called "Book of Immanuel" (Isaiah 6-8). The latter is ringed by two concentric circles that share structural devices and thematic motifs.

BIBLIOGRAPHY

Reviews

"It is hard to fault Bartelt's conclusions: his lineation boundaries conform well to meaning units, and he gives good examples of matching elements found in the corresponding chiastic circles. While this is not an exegetical work, its minute structural study does yield an important key to the unity and meaning of the whole of Isaish 2-12. Not only does Bartelt provide a fresh look at the purpose and unity of Isaish 2-12, he enthusiastically embraces the long tradition of careful Hebrew poetry analysis and restores its luster as an important tool for meaning."--Lawrence Boadt, C. S. P., Washington Theological Union, in Society of Bibilical Literature

"In sum, Bartelt's study points to some important elements in the interpretation of Isaiah. The artistic dimension of Isaiah, particularly its poetic character and rhetorical features, clearly requires extended analysis along the lines that Bartelt puts forward..."--Marvin A. Sweeney, Claremont School of Theology in Biblica
