I SHOULD LIKE to thank those persons who commented on the manuscript of this book, Kenneth Dauber, Michael Wade, Susan Slyomovics, and Irving Massey; and members of the audience at SUNY Buffalo, where I gave an early version of the Isaiah chapter as a lecture. I am also grateful to Brown University for steady logistical and intellectual support during the process of writing and especially to my ever- resourceful research assistant, Blossom S. Kirschenbaum. I should also like to thank John Wilson at SIU Press for skillful and attentive editing. My wife, Carol, as always, provided the deeply grounded support of reassurance and wisdom.
