Example text

SAID's usage echoes the latter. [16] SAID's reference to “word” here has the force of the “lord's” way of communicating; thus, he seems to be advising God to take care with the use of language—that is, to consider how such language might be received.

Furthermore, the address to the “lord” found in these poems carries a sense of both the intimacy and the distance found in the biblical Psalms, an ambivalence SAID renders in the language of longing heard throughout his psalter. And yet readers from these religious communities will be joined by many others outside their boundaries who also find themselves overcome by “a great sorrow,” whom “the word has overpowered,” and yet also know to “keep still” in order to learn how to love again.
