Evasive Text: Zechariah 1-8 and the Frustrated Reader

(Hardback - Nov 1999)

Overview

This work employs an eclectic mix of structuralist and post-structuralist theories in a doomed attempt to discover the symbolic logic at work in Zechariah 1-8s surreal narrative world. Lengthy analyses of Zechariahs intra- and intertextual logic, or lack thereof, are presented. It is finally concluded that Zechariah lacks a concrete symbolic logic, defies grammatical conventions and is unreadable as it stands-and always was this way. One suggestion is that it was the intent of the author, conceived of in a postmodern way, to produce such a work. It is finally concluded that the post-prophetic age of Hebrew literature has much in common with the postmodern.
