Each of these three parts is followed by midrash on Song of Songs 8: 1-6 related in the first person by a contemporary female narrator. The third midrash ( JERUSALEM )-the final part of the book-is the culmination of the narrative as commentary. It is in this section that one realizes fully that this is a set of love stories. "
