The Song of Solomon
This book, the only one in the Bible with love as its central theme, is a collection or cycle of marriage songs. Though the traditional attribution is to Solomon, the identity of the actual author or authors is unknown. According to traditional theological interpretation, the Song is didactic and moral in its purpose, showing God’s love for His chosen people and Christ’s love for his bride, the Church.
A different line of interpretation views the Song as an erotic love poem and an oddity within the biblical canon. In his foreword to Chana and Ariel Bloch’s 1995 translation, critic Stephen Mitchell argues that the sexiness of the Song is undeniable and that:
The allegorical interpretation of the Song, which dominated both the Jewish and Christian traditions for almost two thousand years…qualifies as one of the more peculiar achievements of the human mind.”
