Chapter Summary

This chapter presents an overview of the book, which began with the proposal that progress could be made in understanding the meaning of Second Isaiah's final arrangement if the widely acknowledged poetic character of these chapters were allowed more fully to inform the discussion of its meaning. This approach required some methodological clarification regarding the use of lyric poetic tools for interpreting biblical Hebrew poetry. This clarification, along with the study's attempt to add nuance to traditional interpretations of Second Isaiah, constitute its primary contribution to Second Isaian scholarship and the study of biblical Hebrew poetry more broadly.
