The Lily Among Thorns: A Study of the Biblical Drama Entitled, The Song of Songs
Houghton, Mifflin, 1889 - 274 sayfa
In this work of Biblical commentary, the author explores the meaning of the Old Testament book Song of Songs. Written in the late 19th century at the height of the Victorian Era, the author uses his day's advances in the study of ancient Hebrew as he examines the poetic text. The first part of the book investigates the historic character, poetic background and dramatic structure of Song of Songs. The second part examines the text itself on a verse-by-verse basis. The author helpfully divides the text up into five acts and multiple scenes, giving his interpretation a dramatic feel.

Sayfa 150 - O that thou wert as my brother, that sucked the breasts of my mother! when I should find thee without, I would kiss thee; yea, I should not be despised.
