Isaiah is strangely silent on the destruction of Jerusalem and the people's deportation to Babylon in the early sixth century BCE. Frederik Poulsen demonstrates that the exile hides itself as a »black hole« at the center of the composition and thereby has a decisive influence on the literary structure, poetic imagery, and theological message of this prophetic book.
