Summary:The Book of Job has held a central role in defining the project of modernity from the age of Enlightenment until today.

This volume engages this question and offers new perspectives on the tragic bent of the Book of Job, on its dramatic irony, on Job’s position as mourner, and the unique representation of the Joban body in pain.
