The book of Ruth has sometimes been regarded as a mere appendix to Judges or even as an actual part of that book, a detached story similar to that of the migration of Dan or the war against Benjamin.

The story of Ruth is represented as happening during the period of the judges, and has a direct historical bearing in that it tells of the ancestors of King David. The authorship is wholly unknown. Probably the work was composed in the days after the Exile.

From a literary standpoint the book is highly valued. It is a pastoral idyll, almost a poem, depicting the life of the Israelites in their days of peace.
