Abstract This article demonstrates that the book of Job displays many similarities with Greek tragedies: The book’s main part is made of dialogues and monologues written in verse and spoken by a restricted number of characters.Job’s incomprehensible and tragic destiny is similar to that of heroes in Greek tragedies. Furthermore, the poem about wisdom in chapter 28 can be understood as the intervention of a chorus. This poetic chapter marks the break between the two main parts of the book, the dialogue between Job and his friends (chs. 3-27)and the direct discussion between Job and God (chs. 29-31 and 38-42). The final sentence of Job claiming to have seen God (42:5) can easily be understood in the context of a theater staging of a dialogue between Job’s and God’s characters.
