The Beloved yearns for her Beloved. Is he one of King Solomon's valiant or a shepherd went to graze his flock? Is she one of the king's concubines or a simple shepherdess? The Song of Songs is a three thousand-year-old biblical poem from one of the Books of the Old Testament. This love text which highlights the strong intimate and sentimental relationship between a man and a woman questions the relationship within the couple and his power games, but also the fact that today we accepts more easily in our Western societies that love is not an experience lived exclusively between a man and a woman. Something which is not yet accepted, in all parts of the world. Then comes the reflection on the domination, or the tutelage, of women by men, in all societies. It also opens more widely the concept of hierarchization of the world by the turpitudes of History with the control and a kind of domination of the world by the West, and by extension, by the white man.
