One of the great collection of love poems throughout the centuries, The Song of Songs, which appears in the Bible, and over the years have the focus of much speculation. At various times Moses, Solomon, Isiah, David, and Daniel have been suggested as the authors of these incredible poems. Noted translator Willis Barnstone argues that Biblical scholars have generally dismissed all of these. But whoever the author or authors, woman in central in these beautifully lyrical and often sexually daring poems.
