The oldest known interpretation of the Song (induced by the demand for an ethical and religious element in its content) is allegorical: the Midrash and the Targum represent it as depicting the relations between God and Israel.
The Song is now taken, almost universally, to be the celebration of a marriage, there being, in fact, no hint of allegory in the text.
The date of the Song is indicated by its literary form: the idyl is foreign to the Hebrew genius, and points to the time when the Jews imitated Greek models (Theocritus and Bion).

 Song of Solomon, Song of Songs
For the Song's original audience, her reference to the king's numerous female admirers might conjure the image of a harem, and—even before mention is made of Solomon's tapestries—those who were familiar with Solomon's reputation as a great lover might guess that he is the noble king in question.
As the author of the Song pleads the case for her protagonists in the "court of love," she is also pleading for open recognition of the marital partnership of the god and goddess—Yahweh and Asherah—as two aspects of the Source of life.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Canticle of Canticles
In the allegorical interpretation of the song, it makes no essential difference whether the bride is taken as a symbol of the Synagogue, that is, of the congregation of the Old Covenant or of the Church of God of the New Covenant.
In the song the bride is not reproached with sins and guilt but, on the contrary, her good qualities and beauty receive high praise; consequently, the chosen community of God appears here under that form which is according to the Apostle, without spot or blemish (Eph., v, 27).
In Solomon's song the bride, in reality, does not appear as a queen and does not swing a sword; the other traces of similarity are of so general a character that they probably belong to the wedding festivities of many nations.
