Robert Alter has been hitting the book tour circuit promoting his translation of the former prophets, Ancient Israel, which we noted here.

And some reviews
I enjoyed the interview with Michael Krasny very much. And at the end of the Forward.com piece by Anthony Weiss, there’s a video of a lecture by Robert Alter (the pleasures and perils of biblical translation) and he gets right into the deficiencies of all previous Bible translations (and discusses “style” in language). I’ve been reading the new volume and recommend it! Thank you for this updated post.
