Song of Songs Through the Centuries
Full Product Description
The proposed commentary will be dialogic in two senses. In the first instance, it will be a dialogue between the interpreter and the text, drawing into itself the voices and refractions the text has acquired through its history. Second, it will take the form of an indirect, allusive dialogue between the collaborators. This is aimed, initially, at bringing the two typically divided traditions they represent (Judaism and Christianity) into conversation. In addition, this second aspect of the dialogue aims to reflect something of the text under consideration. In it, the lovers are engaged in rapid-fire verbal exchanges, which cast and recast elaborate metaphors to describe each other, the world around them and their search for love. Their dialogue, over the years, has drawn readers into its midst, creating a conversation that does not end with the book's last chapter, but reaches its fullness in the interpretive tradition.
