New Book rearranges the canticles in an order that author Kenneth A. Klarner believes is how the Song was intended to be

The Song of Songs may comprise only a small segment of the Bible, but it does not diminish its significance. This section offers a message of love that provides tolerant understanding and tells of the problems and solutions love can have. In “Song of Solomon – Remastered,” author Kenneth A. Klarner presents a remastered version wherein readers will find the verses of these Canticles arranged in an order, which the author believes could have been how the Song was intended to be.

The Song is partly something that was once read aloud. A large section is a story in a form that was probably expected to be put on as an act. The whole “Song,” so called is, “remastered,” like getting a good “master” copy for music, because it is put back in the form it was intended to be in.

The author- or editor might be a better term to apply- limits comments, since he is only helping the Bible to say what it intends to say about the subjects. His little note placing the original “Before Anthony Comstock” refers to a censor-minded person of the relatively recent past. Given the power of the censor, he likely would have forbidden books even a little open on the implied subject here and he’d have taken Song of Solomon out of the Bible.

The book is an invitation from the author to familiarize any reader with this not-often-noticed (though it is recited at Passover) section of the Bible. “See what happens when the wording is put in the right place… and it is woman’s HAIR that is a ‘heap of wheat…’ not her waist!”

“Will this be accepted in proven religion? I present this book as a challenge to those that have never considered alternatives to the form given in the Bible. Do their ideas make more sense?” asks the author.

“Song of Solomon – Remastered” will be featured at the New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2011.

About the Author
Kenneth A. Klarner is someone who has analyzed the Song of Solomon and other parts of the Bible and sees stories that are beneath the surface. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin in 1969 and continues to live in Wisconsin, lately becoming an author. He does not believe the term “author” is quite correct for this remastered, so-called, form of the Song of Solomon, but it is his work of reconstruction of the order, of recompiling, that has produced this.
