Michael Rand

Michael Rand is a graduate of the Department of Hebrew and Judaic Studies at New York University (2003). He has worked for the Historical Hebrew Dictionary Project of the Academy of the Hebrew Language (2007-2013), and currently holds the position of Lecturer in Hebrew and Aramaic at the Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies of the University of Cambridge. His main field of expertise is Classical Hebrew piyyut, together with the manuscripts of the Cairo Genizah in which it is copied. Within a wider perspective, he is especially interested in the evolution of Hebrew poetry, both as a self-contained literary/linguistic phenomenon, as well as in its interaction with other Semitic traditions (e.g., Aramaic, Arabic).

Introduction to the Grammar of Hebrew Poetry in Byzantine Palestine

ISBN: 978-1-4632-0402-0
This book investigates the interaction between grammatical norms and poetic technique on the basis of a corpus selected from the oeuvre of the payyetan Eleazar be-rabbi Qillir. As a basis for this investigation, a descriptive/comparative analysis of the Qillirian dialect is offered. The first portion of the work is a grammar devoted mainly to morphology and syntax. The second portion of the work is an investigation of the poetic norms, as well as rhetorical techniques employed by Qillir, together with an assessment of their impact on the grammar. The overall aim of the project is to design an analytical framework within which a self-conscious poetic dialect might be investigated.
