About this book

Belonging to Hebrew Wisdom literature, the Song of Songs offers a fresh look at love and relationships through its main female character, the Shulamite, which profoundly differs from traditional religious approaches to love and sexuality. Drawing from exegetical as well as philosophical sources, Abi Doukhan follows the Shulamite’s journey away from patriarchy to her own self-individuation as she discovers a wisdom of love that is deeply personal and feminine.
