Concentrating on the unique features of discourse in certain sections of Proverbs (1:8–19, 20–33; 6:1–19), Scott L. Harris argues that Proverbs utilizes earlier scriptural traditions, in particular the Joseph story and the book of Jeremiah. In doing so, he provides a robust challenge to the argument that the book of Proverbs lacks reference to Israel’s historical traditions and figures. The contributions of Mikhail Bakhtin and Meir Sternberg in the area of direct discourse, and Michael Fishbane in the area of ancient biblical interpretation, provide the methodological foundations for this interpretation. This book helps to explain some of the unusual characteristics of speech in Proverbs 1–9 and offers a new description of the overall design and pattern of discourse in this pericope.
