This book presents a comprehensive analysis of three famous biblical poems. In this study, the articulation of the higher units underpins the argumentative structure of Deut 32 and Job 3 and is a solid basis for an interpretation that tries to honor the thematic developments in these songs. In the case of Ex 15, where the stanzaic division is already known, the attention shifts to the lower levels. A major point of departure for this book, which is corroborated by its results, is that the complexity of these poems requires a flexible, interpretive approach which covers the full range of language, style, and structure.
