Herbert Marks is Professor of Comparative Literature at Indiana University, where he also directs the Institute for Biblical and Literary Studies and edits the monograph series Indiana Studies in Biblical Literature. He is the editor of the Norton Critical Edition of The English Bible, King James Version: The Old Testament.Review:
“This magnificent (and affordable!) volume, as any Norton edition, is primarily intended for use in university classrooms. Nevertheless, since it offers such rich contextual and interpretive resources for understanding the historic KJV, the books of the Hebrew Bible, and how that corpus has been literarily shaped over centuries, it will surely be a valuable resource at many levels of study.”
- Review of Biblical Literature
“The Norton Critical Edition of The English Bible, King James Version, appearing on the four hundredth anniversary of the great translation, is a real gift to the English-reading world, making this classical version freshly accessible. The introductions to the different biblical books are apt and often illuminating; the generous annotation clarifies archaic terms, corrects translation errors, and provides insight into the texts; and the appended critical and historical materials give readers a wealth of relevant contexts for both Old and New Testament.”
- Robert Alter
“Herbert Marks demonstrates in this work that he is now the foremost literary exegete of the King James Bible and of the Hebrew Bible that it translates.”
- Harold Bloom
