Synopsis: In what is both a radical approach to the Bible, and a fundamental return to its narrative prose, Robert Alter reads the Old Testament with new eyes—the eyes of a literary critic. Alter takes the old yet simple step of reading the Bible as a literary creation.

About the Author: Robert Alter is professor of hebrew and comparative literature at the University of California at Berkeley and the author of, most recently, the highly praised biography of Stendhal, A Lion for Love (Basic Books, 1979).
