Riassunto: Excerpt from Poetry of the Old Testament
The following pages contain the substance of a course of lectures delivered in alternate years at Cardiff over a quarter of a century. They are not a transcript of the lectures given in any one year. For one thing, no written copy exists. For another, a good deal had to be given to University students which is quite unnecessary for the general public, especially in tracing the scientific study of Hebrew poetic form.
The book is, then, a summary of results reached in forty years' study of the poetry found in the Old Testament. Yet it is very far from being what I would have wished it to be, and if I had any hope of improving it, I would have postponed publication still further. There is one section in particular where I feel the inadequacy of my work, and that, to many readers, the most important of all. The truth is that the study of the Psalter had been thrown into the melting-pot by the researches and theories of Gunkel and others, and it may be many years before the adherents of the fresh view-point settle down to a consistent and agreed position. In the circumstances I have felt that the best course was merely to summarize roughly Gunkel's classification, with some reference to the work done by a few others. Any reader who wishes to go further into the matter may consult the books recommended in the Bibliography at the end of this volume.
