In her study of the Psalms Mandolfo carefully and persuasively made clear that the text is multi-voiced and its intention is a dialogic practice that refuses closure and that destabilizes every would-be absolute voice. In the present study Mandolfo conti

I bought this book while doing research on the book of Lamentation. This book is DENSE for its size! I found myself reading and re-reading whole sections to get a better understanding of what the author was saying. The two chapters I read for my paper is now full of colorful underlines and notes in the margins and I am looking forward to spending more time with Daughter Zion. I would highly recommend this book, but I would also suggest that it be read along with Kathleen O'Connor's "Lamentations and the Tears of the World."

The diolectic between leaniency and black letter law in_sin_uates that justice is, or "ought" to be the perogative of (some) viewing 'audience'. L.I.E. [Lord Ist Evil]=W.A.R.[Willen Arse Rape]. W.I.L.L.[Willen Interdit Letter(s) in Law]. Theft. Fellon; Fallen; Falsum. Impious [Sin]=Psycho-socio-phanty. None of us shall teach that, however, the "Seven deadly sins" 'occult' Greed, and, the twelve 'attributes of God' are all negations.

Did maybe a CIA platoon cut loose during Viet nam/u.s.a. and enter Cambodian territory? Was there a hostage situation. Is the secret of "the secret War in Cambodia" that it was an illegal War waged by CIA-C.H.A.O.S.-S.u.s.a. political[dictatorial]radical fanaticals from the lunatic fringe of the lft.-military in a "state-of-mind" of despiration & desprate dispare go A.W.O.L. & leave the UN & other int'l Orp.s to clean & pretty things up??
