Summary note:
Working from the two earliest corpora that allow us to track large-scale change over time, this work provides broad overviews of the available evidence for revision through introduction as well as a set of detailed case studies that offer fresh insight into well-known biblical and Mesopotamian literary texts. The result is a comprehensive and comparative profile of this key scribal method: one that was not only ubiquitous in the ancient Near East but also epitomizes the attitudes of the master scribes toward the literature that they produced.
