"Sisters of a sort, two ancient texts express their authors' intellectual puzzlement and emotional anguish over the destruction of their mother city and the demolition of its sanctuary. Two modern scholars—as schooled in these texts as anyone—present them in crisp and clear translation with incisive introductions, inviting us to wonder what in our very different world is new under the sun."
—George W. E. Nickelsburg
