"This original commentary foregrounds at every turn the poetic genius of the Song of Songs, one of the most elusive texts of the Hebrew Bible. J. Cheryl Exum locates that genius in the way the Song not only tells but shows its readers that love is strong as death, thereby immortalizing love, as well as in the way the poet explores the nature of love by a mature sensitivity to how being in love is different for the woman and the man. Many long-standing conundrums in the interpretation of the book are offered persuasive solutions in Exum's verse by verse exegesis." - publisher.

"Completes the OTL series' coverage of the OT canon, and is a brilliant reading by a leading literary critic. Though not extreme, Exum's approach is more reader-centered...Academics with an interest in OT poetry (and gender studies) will definitely want this volume..." - Evans, A Guide to Biblical Commentaries and Reference Works.
