A masterpiece of deep learning and fine sensibility,Robert Alter's translation of the Hebrew Bible, nowcomplete, reanimates one of the formative works of ourculture. Capturing its brilliantly compact poetry and finelywrought, purposeful prose, Alter renews the Old Testamentas a source of literary power and spiritual inspiration.From the family frictions of Genesis and King David'sflawed humanity to the serene wisdom of Psalms and Job'sincendiary questioning of God's ways, these magnificentworks of world literature resonate with a startling immediacy.Featuring Alter's generous commentary, which quietlyalerts readers to the literary and historical dimensions ofthe text, this is the definitive edition of the Hebrew Bible.
