The Poetry of the King James Version of the Bible in the College Literature Class.
Greenwood, Edward L.
This study discusses the literary excellence of the King James Version of the Bible, in order to encourage its use in college literature classes. Separate chapters present a brief history of the literary treatment of the Bible, a summary of the variety of literary genres contained in the Bible, a demonstration of structural features basic to Hebrew poetry, and benefits that may be derived from a careful study of imagery. The final chapter argues that instructional time should be spent on the King James Version to emphasize the principle of the interdependence of genres in the Bible, to analyze the structure of its poetry, and to examine the kinds of images found in it.
