amen, Vince. what are we supposed to imagine, that BH poetry is not BH?
huh! but d.a. is helpful yet again. like historical narrative dominates
in prose, expository and hortatory dominate in poetry. hortatory is not
the problem. it's expository that is not well understood. esentially BH
poetry is tweo types of case-building: hortatory and arguementative.
