RBL review of Nicholas Wyatt

March 12, 2011

The new batch of reviews at the Review of Biblical Literature contains one of interest for Ugariticians: John Engle’s review of Word of Tree and Whisper of Stone by Nicholas Wyatt.

This volume is a collection of eight articles by Wyatt over a fifteen year period (1992-2007). Engle has a quite difficult task in reviewing this disparate group of material. He does a great job at summarizing Wyatt’s arguments in these articles but doesn’t really engage in the material critically.

However, anyone who has engaged with Wyatt’s arguments knows that they provide scholars with a complicated rabbit trail that often involves three or more articles in disparate journals and books. As such, Engle can be forgiven for his summarization.
