Carolyn Sharp Is Right

On Awilum, Charles Halton gives a brief quotation from Prof. Carolyn Sharp’s most recent book, Irony and Meaning in the Hebrew Bible (Indiana University Press, 2009):

Reading is not a simple act of recognizing codes and cues inked onto parchment or engraved in stone. Apprehension of human communication through written texts, especially across time and across cultural boundaries, can be so complex as to defy description.

A beautifully worded observation, from a truly great teacher.
