Such a claim can be a hazard in times often called and characterized as postmodern. Though written in an idiomatic Greek, “Greek Ezra” is probably a Greek translation from an unknown Hebrew and Aramaic redaction of the materials contained in the biblical books of Chronicles, Ezra, and Nehemiah. McAuley, Paul “Rats of the System” in Crowther, Peter, ed. After another lapse of years, a woman of strangely exotic beauty appears in society, drives her husband to horror and death, causes an artist to paint unthinkable paintings of Witches’ Sabbaths, creates an epidemic of suicide among the men of her acquaintance, and is finally discovered to be a frequenter of the lowest dens of vice in London, where even the most callous degenerates are shocked at her enormities.

Satan's "eight" scheme currently underway is a counter-offensive in response to the "eight" plan executed in Noah's day. Asher, "Speiretai: anthropogenic metaphor in 1 Corinthians 15:42-44," Journal of Biblical Literature 120.1 (Spring 2001): 101-122.

Benford, Gregory In the Oceans of Night. 1977, Dell. Most scholars, however, accept that the main body of the book came from the 6th century BCE, with the inclusion of some later glosses by redactors who remained loyal to the theological traditions of their master-teacher. Joan of Arc's story also demonstrates, at least to Cather's protagonist, that "ideals were not archaic things, beautiful and impotent; they were real sources of power among men" (339).

Somerset Maugham, Virginia Woolf - and a host of people in-between who really aren't read as frequently as the authors I've just mentioned. In Housman's words, the music of the greatest poets is addressed not to "the external ear" but to "the inner chambers of the sense of hearing" (282).
