This monograph contains an analysis of the text-internal reader in Isaiah 6-12.
For that purpose, two modern literary methods are incorporated in Old Testament Exegesis. First, the research makes use of text-linguistics, so it is explicitly based on the idiom of Biblical Hebrew. Next, the domain analysis provides a means of outlining communicative situations between characters, implied author and implied reader, in accordance with various diagrams.
This research shows that the implied reader is involved in the communication evoked by the text. Not only is the implied reader manipulated by the composition of Isa 6-12 as a whole, but he or she is also directly addressed by the implied author. Moreover, he or she is related to the points in time, varying from standing at a certain distance to being involved in the now-moment.

In the year 2000, the first OTS volume by the Jesaja Werkplaats was published, entitled: Studies in Isaiah 24-27 (OTS 43). In the present volume, the question as to the possible unity of the book Isaiah forms the centre of the Jesaja Werkplaats’ interest. In order to gain a better insight into this question, the Jesaja Werkplaats has decided on a fixed starting point: the concept of the ‘city’ within the book Isaiah. This concept not only has a literary meaning, but also a historical one. Examining the ‘city’, therefore, demands various exegetical approaches, overcoming the classical dichotomy between diachrony and synchrony. This volume offers an intriguing variety of contributions on the ‘city’ throughout the entire book Isaiah.
