The Goddess Anath Page 6...

A major contribution to Ugaritic scholarship, The Goddess Anath--Cassuto's work on Canaanite Epics of the Patriarchal Age--is a classic authored by one of the greatest Bible scholars.

C h a p t e r Home  | T O C  | I n d e x VIII TRANSLATOR’S FOREWORD actually a distinguished South African Hebraist who suggested to me the need to render this work into a Western language, and though many years have passed since the happy idea was put forward, I am glad that it has at last been implemented. No attempt has been made to bring Cassuto’s work up- to- date. The bibliography and references have been left as they were. Any other course would have destroyed the historical and ‘ classical’ character of the original. After careful consideration, however, two innovations have been introduced. In the first part of his book Cassuto quoted Ugaritic passages in Hebrew translation. This pro-cedure was justifiable in a Hebrew work, since Hebrew is akin to Ugaritic, and the omission of the original text was an aid rather than a hindrance to the reader. But it would have been unscientific to follow the same method in English. Hence in the present edition every Ugaritic citation is given in transliteration ( Cassuto’s textual readings being reconstructed from his earlier articles) as well as in English translation ( pp. 20– 65 passim). In the second part of the book Cassuto gave the Ugaritic texts in Hebrew transcription and in a beautiful Hebrew rendition that preserved, as far as possible, the etymological features of the original. He used for the purpose two parallel columns. In our English version there are three parallel columns: the first gives a transcription of the Ugaritic text in Latin characters, the second contains Cassuto’s Hebrew translation, and the third comprises the English rendering. The author’s Hebrew translation has been retained on account of its outstanding literary and scientific worth, and there is reason to believe that Cassuto himself, could he have been consulted, would have approved the arrangement ( see his Italian article in Orientalia, VIII, 1939, pp. 238– 243, where the transcription of the Ugaritic text is followed by a Hebrew, in addition to an Italian, version). In conclusion I wish to thank a number of friends whose assistance has been of inestimable value to me in the preparation of my trans-lation. First, I wish to express my gratitude to Dr. Milka Cassuto Salzmann, the daughter of the author, whose contribution to every aspect of the undertaking cannot be overestimated. She checked and rechecked the Hebrew original as well as the translation. She searched out articles and traced references in old periodicals and made numer-ous suggestions of the utmost value, including the use of three ver-sions of the Ugaritic texts. I hope that her filial devotion will be rewarded by the wide dissemination of the present work, together with her father’s other writings, in their English garb.
