Translation versus commentary
There is an unusual and challenging book which I would recommend to members who
have been interested in this discussion:
Words and the Word : language, poetics and Biblical interpretation ,
by Stephen Prickett. Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 1986.
Professor Prickett is in an English Department, and his viewpoint is that of a
literary critic rather than a theologian, but he has much of interest to say
about translation of expressions with multiple meanings.
