The curtain opens to reveal the land of Uz. We see Uz, but we hear the voice of an unseen narrator: "There was a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job..." Efforts to locate Uz on the map are vain, for this is not a historical chronicle. The narrative effect of the opening lines, like the opening credits of the movie Star Wars, is to say this is a story which happened "long ago and far away."6
