The song of Hannah: A poetical component
The prayer of Hannah is a beautiful poem, but has not received the attention as a poem which it rightfully deserves. Various aspects such as its similarity with Psalm 113, its text-critical difficulties and the secondary nature in the context of the book have previously been discussed, but unfortunately not enough thought has been given to its poetical character. This article investigates the intratextual relationships of the poem. This is done in order to illustrate that it is possible to reach a better understanding of the poem itself as well as to determine its contribution to the message of the larger context of the book.
