The Dissatisfied Reader
Elihu and the Historicity of the Moral Imagination
This chapter focuses on the character Elihu and his speeches. It suggests that Elihu is not simply another character; he is a reader of the book of Job, one who literally writes himself into the text. Though commentators have often puzzled over what symbolic significance the names in his extended genealogy might have, it is not impossible that this is simply the real name of an actual reader.
