Abstract [en]

Several prophetic passages in the Hebrew Bible employ plant metaphors in descriptions of deportations, life in exile, or return from exile. This article explores some metaphorical and rhetorical mechanisms at work, and seeks to answer the question: What factors contribute to making imagery related to the conceptual metaphor PEOPLE ARE PLANTS suitable as a means of expressing traumatic experiences of forced migration and exile?
