The Song of Songs: A Woman in Love

Categories: ,

Description

One love poem – the bible’s Song of Songs – continues to be read and to inspire after thousands of years. Using the best of biblical scholarship and sharp literary analysis, Benjamin J. Segal’s new translation and commentary reveals a picture of ideal love so appealing that it became for centuries the monotheistic model of human-divine attachment. Here one also finds a rare ancient effort to capture the female voice.
