    Solomon’s reign contains criticisms; these criticisms illustrate the date of the narrative. Solomon was looked upon as a ruler of peace and welfare. He inherited his throne at a young age from King David. The land he inherited in 970 BC, Israel, ran all along the Mediterranean in the west, up to the Euphrates River in the north, and down all the way to the desert in the south and east.(George Konig, 68) Solomon did not expand his territory any further; rather he built alliances with surrounding countries

    The Success of Solomon as a King John Drane came to the conclusion that 'Judged by the standards of world powers, Solomon was outstandingly successful, the greatest of all Israel's rulers. But judged by the moral and spiritual standards of the covenant, he was a miserable failure.' I agree with Drane in this statement because there were indeed many things Solomon did in his reign that were beneficial to the people and the country. However, for a man working for God, he does not seem to apply

    bird can bring a sense of freedom and power over one’s own life but can also leave those that are left behind in dismay. Flying can either be seen as a sense of abandonment or just a valiant way to accomplish one’s needs. In Toni Morrison’s Song of Solomon, the theme of flight is exemplified. Morrison’s extensive use of flying is one that represents both a negative and positive view in the character’s lives. Morrison uses the idea of flight to depict the journey of Milkman’s life, abandonment of women
