Abstract:

"The original idea of examining the writings of the Old Testament for evidence of oral formulaic composition grew out of a number of conversations held a few years ago with a friend, Donald F. Chapin, now Associate Professor of English at the University of Alberta. He was at the time attending a seminar offered by Professor J.B. Bessinger in which, among other things, the oral style of Old English was being considered. In the course of these conversations I was introduced to the work of Milman Parry, A.B. Lord, and F.P. Magoun, Jr. My first investigations of the Old Testament, begun while I was studying at the University of Bonn, were directed towards the prophetic writings, but the results were not encouraging. At this stage, I had the opportunity of discussing the matter briefly with Professor Martin Noth. It was on his suggestion that I turned to the biblicat psalms, and I soon found that they presented very suitable material for the sort of study I had in mind. Shortly after this, Lord's book The Singer of Tales appeared, and it provided an invaluable guide on almost all aspects of oral formulaic composition"--Preface.
