A Handbook on Lamentations, Volume 25
Concentrates on exegetical information important for translators and attempts to indicate possible solutions for translational problems related to language or culture. The authors do not consciously attempt to provide help that other theologians and scholars may seek but which is not directly related to the translation task. Special attention has been given to the poetic structure so that the translator will be able to understand the movement and the logical progression of the sections of this book, and how they contribute to the message of the whole.
