Chapter Summary

In an extraordinary way, Duhmian readings of Isa. 52:13-53:12 seem to be a matter of re-covering the meaning of the text through some kind of homage to his "Servant Song" thesis. Due to the scholarly consensus since Duhm, readers have become participants in a narrow discursive space restricting signifying practices. This chapter focuses on our understanding of the conventions and operations of modes of discourse. Isa. 52:13-53:12 is a particularly apt case for this pursuit. In this text, many discourses are at play, and the interplay of scholarly and textual discourses is remarkably clear. The chapter provides some illustrations of this from the three different readings: at a linguistic, narrative and an intertextual level.

Keywords: Duhmian; Isa; Servant Song
