Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Professor Falk took the world's most beautiful, powerful and mysterious collection of ancient love poetry and made it more beautiful, more powerful and less mystifying. Her sensitive, evocative English translation honors the Song's nonsexist expression of erotic love . . . this slim volume makes a perfect engagement gift and would be treasured by anyone who appreciates great poetry from a scholarly or an emotional perspective."—Jewish Book World

“Many readers loved her reinterpretations of classic texts . . . Congregations around the country have adopted some of her prayers.”—The Jewish News Weekly of Northern California

"Marcia Falk's translation is a beautiful and sensual poem in its own right . . . one of the great classics of the art of translation. It's always a thrill when (as rarely happens) the scholar's mind and the poet's soul come together."
Isaac Bashevis Singer
“An exceptional poetic job. Marcia Falk has great power in her language.”
