The thesis compares the Hebrew used in the hook of Isaiah with Ugaritic (also Phoenician, Aramaic and Akkadian) with respect to language and poetry. The classification of Ugaritic, especially in relation to Hebrew is discussed. The section on language includes a study of grammar, syntax, expressions and vocabulary. Examination of theories on Hebrew poetry is followed by comparison of Hebrew and Ugaritic stichometry and poetic devices. Four passages are translated, with notes and after brief remarks on transmission, problems of dating and finally, conclusions, are indicated. An appendix lists parallel and repeated word-pairs common to Ugaritic and Hebrew.
