Chapter Summary

The precise references to the various passages of the Song are noted in the course of the analysis. It is contented with the inclusio between the Prologue and the Epilogue (Song 8:5-14). The most obvious correspondence is that of the theme of the 'vineyard'. In both cases, it is spoken of in an ambiguous way, first in the usual sense of the term, then in a figurative sense karmi selli, &t;my vineyard, my very own&t;. The structure of the last section of the Song is not easily recognisable. The structure of the last section of the Song is not easily recognisable. Here we find expressed clearly what has already been spoken of symbolically in various images (the lotus flower, the henna, the little goat, the bag of myrrh).
