Example text

Clements, 'Understanding the Book of Hosea7, RevExp 72 (1975) pp. 405-23. Clements argues for a Judean editing of the text of Hosea, and looks at the complex in chs. 1-3 from this perspective. FONTAINE Hosea 51 The reader without knowledge of Hebrew will probably wonder at the great range of modern translations given for a single passage in Hosea. This is due to the poor condition of the original text, which is second in difficulty only to the book of Job. Some speculate that the corrupt state of the text is a result of the adverse effects of political and social turmoil during the period in which it was written and smuggled to safety in Judah.

It therefore remains to be asked if, and how, this type of religious propaganda makes use of pornographic representations of woman in Hosea and other books of the genre. BRENNER Introduction 35 Four articles and one response are addressed to this issue. The first two, 'The Metaphorization of Woman in Prophetic Speech: An Analysis of Ezekiel 23' by the late Fokkelien van Dijk-Hemmes, and my 'On Prophetic Propaganda and the Politics of "Love"', extend the debate beyond Hosea.
