The Bible and Literature: a Personal View by Northrop Frye - Program 18 "Exodus: A Revolutionary Heritage"

For Frye, the Exodus story is the central story of the Old Testament. In it God gives himself a name and declares himself on the side of the oppressed. The Exodus from Egypt becomes the pattern throughout the Bible for all deliverances from tyranny. Contains material from Lecture 15 (Part 2).
