One article presents an original translation with commentary, another an edited Hebrew text along with critical notes, and the final article addresses specific problematic texts separately. Thus the reader gains access to the text in both English and Hebrew under the careful direction of the author’s critical apparatus. Throughout, Haupt’s command of the textual traditions and the relevant languages along with his historical-critical insights demonstrate the great depth of his knowledge of this book and its history. Together, these articles provide an excellent resource for the study of the Book of Canticles, both for the layperson and the scholar.
