The Book of Psalms

Full Product Description

A cornerstone of the biblical canon, "The Book of Psalms" has been a source of solace and joy for countless readers over millennia. The purity of its images invites reflection and supplication in times of sorrow. The musicality of its rhythms moves readers to celebration of good tidings. As in the past, today it is a book to be cherished as the grounding for daily life. This timeless poetry is beautifully wrought by a scholar whose translation of "The Five Books of Moses" was hailed as a 'godsend' by Seamus Heaney, a 'masterpiece' by Robert Fagles and a 'remarkable work of scholarship' by James Wood. Robert Alter's "The Book of Psalms" captures the simplicity, the physicality and the coiled rhythmic power of the Hebrew, restoring the remarkable eloquence of these ancient poems. His learned and insightful commentary shines a light on the obscurities of the text.

The Book of Psalms by Robert Alter was published by WW Norton& Co in October 2009 and is our 23833rd best seller. The ISBN for The Book of Psalms is 9780393337044.
