Abstract

VAN DER ZWAN, Pieter. The punished and the lamenting body. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2019, vol.75, n.3, pp.1-8. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v75i3.5092.

The 5 lamentations, when read as a single biblical book, outline several interacting bodies in a similar way that dotted lines present the silhouettes and aspects of a total picture. Each also represents action, building into a plot that can be interpreted psychoanalytically to render its depth and colour content. In addition, by focusing on the body and its sensations, this study can facilitate the visceral experience of the suffering of collective and individual bodies by the recipient.
