Scholars have long recognized the significance of of typology for the classification of biblical poetry and the development of measurable typological indicators. Yet thus far no one has systematically classified biblical poetry.

The aim of this monograph is to demonstrate the chronological development of the metrical features of Biblical Hebrew poetry in the light of colometric and metrical analyses.

Reviews

"In this book, Sung Jin Park provides a thorough historical review and evaluation of scholarship related to the metrics of biblical Hebrew poetry. After discussing the inadequacies of previous descriptive approaches to the metrics of Hebrew poetry. ... On the whole, the author succeeded in demonstrating that a generative metric using the the Tiberian Accentuation System is a good means of measuring metric divisions in biblical Hebrew poetry. This work is a valuable contribution to the field of Hebrew Poetic Metrics."
