Abstract :
Major exegetical interest in the literary device of irony started only with the rise of new literary critical approaches. On this topic, Edwin M. Good (Irony in the Old Testament, Philadelphia, PA, 1965) seems to have been a precursor. The publication of Carolyn J. Sharp’s study (Irony and Meaning in the Hebrew Bible, Bloomington, IN, 2009) gives us the occasion to return to this multi-meaning concept, to show its relevance for interpreting the Old Testament, and to examine the hermeneutical challenges within a larger postmodern perspective.
