I’m sure you guys are already very familiar with the poetry in the Jewish Bible, so I won’t get into too many details. Essentially I am looking for poetry with nihilism, cynicism, vanity of the world, betrayal, pessimism, etc. as the theme. I am almost certain that this is a popular type of poetry among ancient Jewish poets seeing how prevalent it is in the Bible. I have read the Jewish poetry books many times and I am looking for other poems as something new. Googling didn’t help much and I didn’t want to waste too much effort searching on the internet for these poems before asking on here first.
I just want poetry like when Job deplores his birth in Ch. 3 of Job; when Solomon speaks about how pointless the world is; or when David talks about G-d’s help, G-d’s wisdom, how evil prevails, betrayal by your friends, etc.
Thanks in advance.
