Dear Vadim,
All of this has been discussed,
you are not bringing up anything new.
For me to argue with each of these statements,
I'd only be repeating myself.
I suggest you might want to look at H.G.M. Williamson's
The Book of Isaiah, which provides a good discussion of
how the book can be read as a whole. Also, J.W.Watts
commentary on Isaiah I find quite excellent, as is
Blenkinsopp's. 
All these, and many others, argue that Duhm was wrong
when he tried to show that the Servant Songs are out of
context.
This is of course the main problem with writing about
Isaiah, the vast literature out there.
I think we are going around in circles now.
Best,
Liz
