16 The Song of Songs in English Renaissance Literature: Kisses of Their Mouths
Flinker, Noam D.S.Brewer Ltd 2000 0859915867 / 9780859915861 Hard Cover Fine No Jacket as Issued 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
BRAND NEW HARDBACK. RRP. 50.00. 173pp. Green cloth. No dust jacket (as issued). Many English Renaissance texts offer readings of the "Song of Songs", by both well-known authors, such as Shakespeare, and the long neglected (William Baldwin, Robert Aylett, Abiezer Coppe and Lawrence Clarkson). This new study looks at the different traditions they represent, and most notably the balance in the tension of the "Song of Songs" as oral and written, carnal and spiritual. The introduction presents a historical and theoretical discussion of Canticles, using a Rabbinic model for juxtaposing orality and textuality; the author goes on to argue that from the time of ancient Sumer through medieval England motifs found in the "Song of Songs" are simultaneously sexual and spiritual just as they are likewise oral and textual. By attempting to recover oral approaches to any text, we encounter a series of forces that act to balance an open, oral, and sexual understanding of the erotic biblical text against a more closed, textual and spiritual reading. This balance is then traced through works by Baldwin, Spenser, Aylett, Coppe, Clarkson and Milton. Noam Flinker is currently Chairperson at the Department of English, University of Haifa. 032437

Just thirteen when her life changed forever, Joan's holy guidance led her on an arduous eleven-day journey into the unknown, restoring the Dauphin back to his original birthright in an official coronation where he was able to resume his rule as France's legitimate king. Joan summoned and led an impressive army of French loyalists against the English, marking the siege at Orleans as an exhilarating English defeat that would liberate the city. 305916

15 The Song of Songs in English Renaissance Literature: Kisses of Their Mouths
Flinker, Noam D.S.Brewer Ltd 2000 0859915867 / 9780859915861 Hard Cover Fine No Jacket as Issued 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
BRAND NEW HARDBACK. RRP. 50.00. 173pp. Green cloth. No dust jacket (as issued). Many English Renaissance texts offer readings of the Song of Songs, by both well-known authors, such as Shakespeare, and the long neglected (William Baldwin, Robert Aylett, Abiezer Coppe and Lawrence Clarkson). This new study looks at the different traditions they represent, and most notably the balance in the tension of the Song of Songs as oral and written, carnal and spiritual. The introduction presents a historical and theoretical discussion of Canticles, using a Rabbinic model for juxtaposing orality and textuality; the author goes on to argue that from the time of ancient Sumer through medieval England motifs found in the Song of Songs are simultaneously sexual and spiritual just as they are likewise oral and textual. By attempting to recover oral approaches to any text, we encounter a series of forces that act to balance an open, oral, and sexual understanding of the erotic biblical text against a more closed, textual and spiritual reading. This balance is then traced through works by Baldwin, Spenser, Aylett, Coppe, Clarkson and Milton. Noam Flinker is currently Chairperson at the Department of English, University of Haifa. 032436
