Item Description...
A comparison of three Biblical heroes with three heroes of early Irish literature, using themes of weakness and strength, gender and power, frailty and ambiguity. Are early Irish stories influenced by the Bible or transcriptions of pre-Christian Celtic lore? Layzer explores the practical and theoretical difficulties of determining 'influence' in ancient writing, and the relationship between the oral and the written, literacy and literature and the disciplines of Irish Studies and Biblical Studies. This fascinating comparative study matches Samson, Jonah and Esther with three Irish heroes for similarities in theme and treatment. Among the features explored are weakness and heroic strength, gender and power, frailty and ambiguity. The sexy, counterintuitive characters of the Irish stories throw a wonderful light on the techniques of ancient Hebrew narrative.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The comparisons illuminate each tradition  Sep 6, 2001
In Signs Of Weakness: Juxtaposing Irish Tales And The Bible, Varese Layzer surveys and analyses both the practical and the theoretical difficulties of determining "influence" in ancient writing. To do so focuses on the relationship between the oral and written, literacy and literature, and the disciplines of Irish Studies and Biblical Studies. Signs Of Weakness is an impressive, original, scholarly student that matches Samson, Jonah and Esther with three heroes from early Irish literature, ad Layzer explores their weakness and heroic strengths, gender and power, frailty and ambiguity. The comparisons illuminate each tradition and showcases the literary and emotional wealth of these two ancient narrative traditions for today's readers. Enhanced with a glossary of Irish terms, and index of Biblical and Ancient references, an index of early Irish texts, and an index of authors, Signs Of Weakness is very highly commended to students of literature and mythos.
