Performances Of Ancient Jewish Letters

Full Product Description

Marvin L. Miller applies performance theory to letters that were not just read in silence, but were performed, and prompts the reader to listen sympathetically to various ancient Jewish letters. Marvin Lloyd Miller combines a wide range of approaches to cast new light on the form and function of several ancient Jewish letters in a variety of languages. He applies a new emerging field of performance theory to texts, and argues that letters and other documents were not just read in silence, as is normal today, but were "performed" especially when they were addressed to a community. The Performance focuses closely on the ways in which the engagement of the audience during the performance of a text might be read from traces present in the text itself.

Performances Of Ancient Jewish Letters by Miller, Marvin Lloyd was published by Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht in October 2015. The ISBN for Performances Of Ancient Jewish Letters is 9783525550939.
