Abstract

by James c. Nohrnberg James c. Nohrnberg has taught Bible and literature classes at Harvard (1967), Yale (1969-74), and the University of Virginia (where he has been Professor of English since 1975). He has published on Homer, Dante, Spenser, Milton, and Thomas Pynchon, and teaches Shakespeare. A student of the late Northrop Frye, he is the author of The AtUllogy of 'The Faerie Queene' (1976, Imt. pb. edn., 1981). The present paper is part of a long-term project on the Bible. He it is who fashioneth you in the wombs as pleaseth Him. There is no God save Him, the Almighty, the Wise.
