Chapter Summary

This chapter begins with a bibliography of editions, translations and studies of the text, CAT 1.3 VI and CAT 1.8. It provides the text restored and set in poetic form. This is followed by a commentary on poetic parallelism and word/syllable counts. The parallelism of final -umā is generated by the morphology of the final nouns in the two lines. These endings are echoed in the ending -umā in the plural masculine nominal form at the head of the second line. The final column of 1.3 marks a new departure for the narrative. Since Anat's entreaty of El has failed, Baal pursues another avenue. Some scholars have related the title qdš to Athirat and have suggested that it appears here to emphasize the messenger's close relationship to the goddess. The issue of the fragment identified by Bordreuil and Pardee as RS 3.347 remains uncertain.

Keywords: CAT 1.3 VI 7ff; CAT 1.8; poetic parallelism; Ugaritic Baal Cycle
