Stories of the Law: Narrative Discourse and the Construction of Authority in the Mishnah

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article reviewpeer-review

Abstract

According to Simon-Shoshan, narrativity refers to two textual attributes: the dynamic portrayal of change in a text and the reference in a text to a specific time, place, event, individual or object.From low-level narrative literary forms such as apodictic statements and speech acts to full-fledged stories, such as case stories and exempla, Simon-Shoshan surveys a wide range of literary forms on the narrativity continuum.[...]though part 2 is informed by the theoretical work of part 1, it is not dependent on part 1; each chapter in part 2 can stand on its own as an independent study.
