Parable, poetry... and Godly Play
|University College 'Archbishop Fonseca'|
This latter approach is the one that has been adopted by Charles W. Hedrick (Parables as Poetic Fictions. The Creative Voice of Jesus, Peabody, Massachusetts; Hendrickson Publishers: 1994), where he analyses the parables as 'poetic fictions'. He highlights their languaje as 'aesthetic objects' and thus the figures of speech that are found in them: assonance, consonance, euphony, etc.
