After two decades of teaching the subject, this distinguished Old Testament scholar compiles a synthesis that takes into account and organizes the factors that are at work in the act of understanding and interpreting literary texts: producer, receiver, text, subject matter, language. Two chapters deal with normative interpretation and the sociology of interpretation. The author, who was a learned and independent thinker, in bondage to no theory, said of this work that it aimed at density without obscurity, order without showiness.It is not a sonata or concerto, but only its conventional notation. The musical work exists only while it is being performed or interpreted. The same Beethoven sonata is interpreted by many maestros: it is always different, always the same.
