Poetry in the Hebrew Bible
£170.00 – £245.00
Much of the Hebrew Bible (the Old Testament) is written in poetry. We will tour this ancient verse afresh, reading from the Psalms, Isaiah, Job, and Song of Songs (in English), to discover how its characteristic use of repetition enables nuance, ambiguity, and paradox, as well as emotional intensity. We will explore some of the ways in which biblical poetry has continued to inspire poets and musicians down the centuries, and consider how it might nourish our own spiritual journeys.
