Chapter Summary

This chapter of the book Cantos and Strophes in Biblical Hebrew Poetry III: Psalms 90-150 and Psalm 1 presents a list of definitions relevant to the discussion on cantos and strophes in Biblical Hebrew Poetry III. The most impressive regularity on macrostructural level is found in psalms which exclusively consist of an unbroken series of exactly regular cantos. The numbers in bold face stand for the number of verselines the cantos are composed of. The canto arrangements are presented from the most simple design (4.4 lines) to the more complex ones (leading up to 21.21 lines).

Keywords: Biblical Hebrew poetry; cantos; psalms; strophes
