Lendo a poesia de Isaías

Uma compreensão adequada do anúncio profético de Isaías é impossível se não prestarmos atenção suficiente à sua arte linguística e às características formais e temáticas que tornam suas palavras poesia.

An adequate understanding of Isaiah’s prophetic proclamation is impossible without sufficient attention to his linguistic artistry, to the formal and thematic features that make his words poetry  (J. Blake Couey, Reading the Poetry of First Isaiah, p. 2).


Sempre afirmei isto em sala de aula.

Fui aluno de Luis Alonso Schökel e de Rémi Lack e minhas leituras na área passam por SCHÖKEL, L. A. Estudios de poética hebrea. Barcelona: Juan Flores, 1963; LACK, R. La symbolique du livre d'Isaie: Essai sur l’image littéraire comme élément de structuration. Rome: Biblical Institute Press, 1973 e SCHÖKEL, L. A. ; SICRE DIAZ, J. L. Profetas I-II. 2. ed. São Paulo: Paulus, 2002-2004.

Isto pode ser visto em meu livro A Voz Necessária: Encontro com os profetas do século VIII a.C.

Agora descobri este livro que parece interessante:

COUEY, J. B. Reading the Poetry of First Isaiah: The Most Perfect Model of the Prophetic Poetry. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2015, XIV + 247 p. - ISBN 9780198743552.

COUEY, J. B. Reading the Poetry of First Isaiah: The Most Perfect Model of the Prophetic Poetry. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2015


Reading the Poetry of First Isaiah provides a literary and historical study of the prophetic poetry of First Isaiah, an underappreciated but highly sophisticated collection of poems in the Hebrew Bible. Informed by recent developments in biblical studies and broader trends in the study of poetry, Dr J. Blake Couey articulates a fresh account of Biblical Hebrew poetry and argues that careful attention to poetic style is crucial for the interpretation of these texts. Discussing lineation, he explains that lines serve important rhetorical functions in First Isaiah, but the absence of lineated manuscripts from antiquity makes it necessary to defend proposed line divisions using criteria such as parallelism, rhythm, and syntax. He examines poetic structure, and highlights that parallelism and enjambment create a sense of progression between individual lines, which are tightly joined to form couplets, triplets, quatrains, and occasionally even longer groups. Later, Dr Couey treats imagery and metaphor in First Isaiah. A striking variety of images-most notably agricultural and animal imagery-appear in diverse contexts in these poems, often with rich figurative significance.

Couey's work would be particularly helpful as an introduction to Hebrew poetics, as a contribution to literary work on Isaiah, and as an addition to current debates concerning the intersection of Hebrew poetry and prophetic literature (Chelsea Lamb, Ambrose University - Journal of Hebrew Scriptures - Volume 17, 2017).

J. Blake Couey teaches in the area of Hebrew Bible in the Religion Department at Gustavus Adolphus College in Saint Peter, MN.

COUEY, J. B. ; JAMES, E. T. (eds.) Biblical Poetry and the Art of Close Reading. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2018  - ISBN 9781316659670.

This volume explores the aesthetic dimensions of biblical poetry, offering close readings of poems across the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. Composed of essays by fifteen leading scholars of biblical poetry, it offers creative and insightful close readings of poems from across the canon of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament (Psalms, wisdom poetry, Song of Songs, prophecy, and poetry in biblical narrative). The essays build on recent advances in our understanding of biblical poetry and engage a variety of theoretical perspectives and current trends in the study of literature. They demonstrate the rewards of careful attention to textual detail, and they provide models of the practice of close reading for students, scholars, and general readers. They also highlight the rich aesthetic value of the biblical poetic corpus and offer reflection on the nature of poetry itself as a meaningful and enduring form of art.
