Opens with a presentation of the main theories on the multiple authorship of the book named after the eighth‐century b.c. Judaean prophet Isaiah. Sets out the theories of Döderlein and Duhm on the book's three major historical and compositional sections, known as Proto‐, Deutero‐ and Trito‐Isaiah, and considers the significance of multiple authorship for the validity of the book's predictive prophecy. It then presents a ‘selective but representative’ review of academic research into the process of combination into a single book and into the historical and compositional relationship of Deutero‐Isaiah to Proto‐Isaiah, classifies the different approaches to the ‘modern period of study of the “unity” of Isaiah’ from the 1980s onwards, and ends by considering whether or not tracing the history of the book's composition can result in an adequate understanding of its present form.
