Chapter Summary

The two-part structure exemplified by the central battle scene is a feature common to poetic narrative in the Baal Cycle. It is found several times in speeches and in their narrative implementation and also in straight narrative passages. In 1.2 IV the battle between Baal and Yamm is also divided into two parallel parts. Two-part speeches are linked by a standard expression, ’ap mn rgmm ’argm, "also on a second subject I would speak," a line found in 1.3 IV 31-32 and 1.4 I 20. The longest two-part section in the Baal Cycle is perhaps the parallel narratives detailing first Anat's quest for El's permission for Baal's palace and then Athirat's more successful effort toward this goal. The two parts also correspond to the two elements that are common in descriptions of ḥerem warfare.
