Intratextural Analysis of the Mirroring Birth Stories of Samson and Samuel. Explaining the Narrative Logic of Literary Montage
2015 1-4955-0399-2
“In this fascinating and scholarly work by Mollo, there is an intellectual weaving of two similar yet different plots, including characters, motifs and wordings and with two distinctive logical conclusions that arguably apply to each other. The aim which is achieved is to reconstruct the literary causes and goals (narrative logic) governing form and content in both accounts, in order to explain how this mirroring effect works to convey meaning to both stories.”
