A new translation of the first book in the Bible honors the meanings and literary strategies of the ancient Hebrew language, while bringing the stories cohesively together in a narrative format that makes it read more like a fully realized book.

Review:

The Biblical book of Genesis contains some of the most sublime poetry known to man as well as the powerful and bloody history of early Israel. Literary critic Robert Alter here joins the ranks of contemporary authors who have tried to mimic, in English, the sonorous rhythms and parallel constructions of the original Hebrew. He also supplies an insightful, fascinating commentary that emphasizes the dramatic unity of the Genesis story. For believers seeking a deeper understanding of the Bible's first book, or for readers interested in the Bible as literature, Alter's contribution is essential.

About the Author:

Robert Alter is Class of 1937 Professor of Hebrew and Comparative Literature at the University of California, Berkeley.
