The Song of Songs A New VersionThis book as inspired me to go back to my own poems I once wrote I shied away because 1 I was often ridiculed in school for them and 2 no one could understand them This is an inspiration And It Will Also Set Any Bookworm Or Poetry Love it will also set any bookworm or poetry love poet on fire over the way a beautiful love poem an ode to someone was taken and twisted because it was deemed dirty PerspectiveA beautiful perspective on a story long told I do love the translation and the points of view for each piece make such a difference in the reading I think I d ave rather ad it without the commentary at the end as it took my mind away from this beautiful celebration of LOVE THIS IS ACTUALLY A SCHOLARLY This is actually a scholarly of women s love poetry which preceded the writing and inclusion of the Song of Songs in the Old Testament and then the New Testament It is fascinating stuff Relates to the last 4000 years of literary and cultural istory Don t be put off by scholarly This book is delightful I picked this up on Kindle for 99 cents because another book by Sam Torode looked interesting His version of Song of Songs and introduction argues for a literal reading of the story as love story between shepherd and Shulamite woman As the woman as most of the narrative voice in these poems Torode assumes it was written by a female author which would be rare in that timeI didn t read this along side the Hebrew but for what I can remember Torode does a fair rendering of the poems even if stylized for Englis.
