My “go to” recommendations for this sort of information, though, are Walton’s two volumes:

Ancient Israelite Literature in its Cultural Context (1994)


Ancient Near Eastern Thought and the Old Testament (2006)

Ancient Texts for the Study of the Hebrew Bible: A Guide to the Background Literature (2005)
