Abstract

The article contrasts two approaches to Judges 17–21, a historical-critical approach which studies the text as ideology, and a literary approach which treats the text within the framework of the Deuteronomistic History. The literary study is given further refinement in the light of some recent literary theory, which distinguishes between different viewpoints expressed in a text, particularly those of the implied author and the narrator. Judges 17–21 is found to express different views of the monarchy which may be characterizd as those of the narrator and of the implied author. When these chapters are studied also by a historicalcritical approach it is clear that there is a conformity with the literary approach in that the sources of the Deuteronomistic History express the view of the narrator while the Deuteronomistic Historian's perspective is that of the implied author.
