Barbara Green's monograph, How Are the Mighty Fallen?, opens new vistas for the interpretation of 1 Samuel. No other work has attempted to use Bakhtin's thought so systematically in its interpretive project. In one sense the book might be viewed as a kind of experimental workshop in which the usefulness and generative potential of Bakhtin's categories are systematically explored. One of the risks in such a procedure is that not everything will work equally well—or, conversely, that there will not finally be an integral relationship between the Bakhtinian categories and the reading that is produced. Perhaps the most useful applications of Bakhtinian categories are "answerability" and "architectonics." Two of his concepts employed by Green that are found less satisfactorily are his understanding of genre and chronotope.
