comment How can we ensure a given “chiasm” was intentional by the author, and is not merely fanciful eisegesis?
Also, how do you regard seemingly over-arching chiasms like Luke-Acts where the narrative has a direction, even if the pieces do not correspond 1:1 with each other. In Luke everything heads towards Jerusalem. In Acts everything heads away. Is that not chiastic?

I'm curious how you apply this to the Genesis passage in your question above. There is a strong pattern in chapter 3 of serpent -> woman -> man : man -> woman -> serpent : serpent -> woman -> man. Are elements of that properly called a chiasm?

I ended up creating a question for the bigger question, in case you want to move some of your content here over there.

I think I'm understanding now, but it feels like a thin reed, so maybe I don't have it right still. Basically you think there's a literary correspondence that exists only if 1-20 and 21 are viewed separately and the best opportunity for that is a two stage composition/"publication"?

Thanks Matthew. The parallels with Ecclesiastes are interesting. Could you clarify why the pattern of the three "love" questions is more fitting of a later addition?
