Steven MacDonald

Recommended Posts

Author:  Robert Lowth


This book is a publication of 34 lectures by Bishop Robert Lowth, a lecturer at Oxford University on the topic of Hebrew poetry.  Lowth's lectures are a foundational work for the study of Hebrew poetry.  He is credited to be the first Westerner (post dark age) to "discover" parallelism in the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible) and systematically analyze it and categorize it, i.e. synonymous, antithetic, synthetic, and other forms of parallelism.
