Moses is the unknown alien, the adoptive Egyptian, and the founder of the nation of Israel as a people set apart unto God. He is the stammerer who becomes the spokesman for the Hebrew God and whose words are recorded in four books of the Bible. But he is a veiled figure who exists both inside and outside the text which describes and defines him. "Moses" is a creation of Israelite literary and scriptural tradition, an ideological construct, a reinvented memory, a projection of what Israel wished to see in Moses. The story of Moses and the exodus is the Bible's view of its own genesis. Nohrnberg examines that story and the texts of "Moses" for their representation of the tradition's own imperilment and self-doubt, and its regularly revisionary, "deuteronomic", content. He remakes the literary case for reading biblical textuality for its plot, the most singular biblical figures for their doubleness, the deep history of the aboriginal past for a more contemporaneous historical allegory. He shows that any comprehensive poetics of the Bible must give a positive account of such stereoscopic and anachronic structures within these texts.
