Edmee Kingsmill - The Song of Songs and the Eros of God: A Study in Biblical Intertextuality
Published: 2010-01-25 | ISBN: 0199577242 | PDF | 320 pages | 3 MB
Modern biblical scholarship interprets the Song as a collection of love lyrics. For Edmee Kingsmill, on the contrary, the essence of the Song is mystical. A principal concern of this study, however, is to uncover the relationship between the 117 verses of the Song and those biblical books to which they point. Beneath the metaphors a network of allusions is being woven, conveying a picture opposite to that we find in the prophets who, confronted with the continual 'adultery' of Israel, poured forth their condemnations with unwearying passion.
