A Restoration of the Drama of Canticles
Excerpt from A Restoration of the Drama of Canticles: With Copious Notes; Also an Essay on the Calf Cult of Northern IsraelThe notes appended are for the purpose of making clear some local and biblical references and for defending the construction of the present paraphrase, which, as far as possible, avoids any of the questions regarding the interpretation of the book.The "Song of Solomon" is treated as literature, nothing more or in any way different from what it appears to be at first sight; there is no meaning read into it, neither is it made to favor any commentator's views, however scholarly he may be.The fragmentary condition of the text called for connective tissue; the heroine was evidently one person, but the different attitudes and the conflicting proposals of the male characters demanded that persons to whom a classification of the speeches would make it possible to assign that which was proper to them, should be discovered.The translator claims the original discovery of the eunuch or chamberlain; the father of the heroine has never hitherto been brought to light; and the structure as well as the purpose of the last chapter is now for the first time brought into relationship with the rest of the book. Indeed, the destructive school of critics have in some instances proposed the taking of it away from the book, leaving this detached portion to shift for itself, thinking that it is one of the earliest of the "pious frauds" in which an obscure writer endeavors to attach his production to a famous one, and so obtain an unacknowledged immortality.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
