The Song of Songs: Love Lyrics from the Bible
Series: HBI Series on Jewish WomenPaper: $17.95
Striking in its appeal to the senses, the Song of Songs—the Bible’s only book of love poems—is remarkable for its lack of sexual stereotyping and its expression of mutuality in relationships between men and women. Marcia Falk’s rich and lyrical translation, praised by poets and scholars alike, is paired here with the original Hebrew text.
MARCIA FALK is a widely published poet and translator of Hebrew and Yiddish poetry. Her most recent publications include a groundbreaking new prayer book, The Book of Blessings (1996), and a volume of translations of the modern mystic poet Zelda, The Spectacular Difference (2004).
