The ten essays in this volume, the majority specially written, engage with questions of voice (whose?) and interplay (what kind?) between received interpretation and resisting female reader, and ventures into methodological territory familiar and unfamiliar to biblical scholars, including autobiographical critism. Among earlier readers invoked in these pages are Jerome, Rashie and Fray Luis de Leon, who brush pages with Haitian prostitutes. The three sections of the fresh, colorful and adventurous journey into love, sex, allegory and self inside the Most Sublime Song are: Feminist Appropriations; Specific Readings: Allegories and Feminists; and The Song of Songs Personalized.
