In its wanton celebration of violence, the book of Nahum poses ethical challenges to the modern reader. O'Brien offers the first full-scale engagement with this dimension of the book, exploring the ways in which the artfulness of its poetry serves the book's violent ideology, highlighting how its rhetoric attempts to render the Other fit for annihilation.She then reads from feminist, intertextual and deconstructionist angles and uncovers the destabilizing function of the book's aesthetics.Finally, she demonstrates how mining Nahum's ambiguities and tensions can contribute to an ethical response to its violence.This is a reprint of the 2002 edition.
