There is no impossibility in supposing the prophets to have been literate; but the present form of their books is difficult to explain, if they composed these books themselves. Even the most orderly of the prophetic books (Ezekiel) strikes the modern reader as rather jumbled, in comparison with books familiar today, while Hosea or Isaiah present a quite bewildering variety and disorder. To cope with this, modern scholarship has proposed that each book contains a core of authentic oracles by the prophet in question, which he probably delivered orally but did not write down, but that the remainder of the book (usually the greater part) derives from later writers.
The setting of the great bulk of Hebrew poetry remains the liturgy, first of the Temple (Solomon’s and its post-exilic successor), then of the synagogue. Form critics have suggested likely occasions for the various types of Psalm in the biblical Psalter (Mowinckel 1962; cf. Day 1990). Anyone can see that some of these suggestions are likely to be correct: for example, Psalm 65 is obviously a harvest thanksgiving psalm, Psalm 21 a psalm for some celebration in time of war, Psalm 114 for a festival commemorating the Exodus (probably the Passover), and so on.
