“White Trash” Wisdom: Proverbs 9 Deconstructed

“White Trash” Wisdom: Proverbs 9 Deconstructed

Full Description

Sneed, Mark. “‘White Trash’ Wisdom: Proverbs 9 Deconstructed.” Journal of Hebrew Scriptures 7.5 (2007): 2–10.

In this article … I will show how the eroticization of wisdom has a darker and more sinister side. Instead of serving to liberate woman, it reinscribes traditional ideology along the lines of gender, social class, and race. I will illuminate this ideology and then show how the wisdom/folly dichotomy, the dominant one in these chapters, deconstructs, with a little prodding, exposing its ultimately tenuous character.
