A propos de cet article

352 pages. Dimensions: 8.6in. x 5.4in. x 1.0in.This is the first English translation of the major Armenian epic on Adam and Eve composed by Arakel of Siwnik in the early fifteenth century. Arakel writes extremely powerful narrative poetry, as in his description of the brilliance of paradise, of Satans mustering his hosts against Adam and Eve, and Eves inner struggle between obedience to God and Satans seduction. In parts the epic is in dialogue form between Adam, Eve, and God. It also pays much attention to the typology of Adam and Christ, or Adams sin and death and Christs crucifixion. By implication, this story, from an Eastern Christian tradition, is the story of all humans, and bears comparison with later biblical epics, such as Miltons Paradise Lost. Michael E. Stones version preserves a balance between literary felicity and faithfulness to the original. His Introduction sets the work and its author in historical, religious, and literary context. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. N° de réf. du libraire 9780199204779

This is the first English translation of the major Armenian epic on Adam and Eve composed by Arak'el of Siwnik' in the early fifteenth century. Arak'el writes extremely powerful narrative poetry, as in his description of the brilliance of paradise, of Satan's mustering his hosts against Adam and Eve, and Eve's inner struggle between obedience to God and Satan's seduction. In parts the epic is in dialogue form between Adam, Eve, and God. It also pays much attention to the typology of Adam and Christ, or Adam's sin and death and Christ's crucifixion. By implication, this story, from an Eastern Christian tradition, is the story of all humans, and bears comparison with later biblical epics, such as Milton's Paradise Lost. Michael E. Stone's version preserves a balance between literary felicity and faithfulness to the original. His Introduction sets the work and its author in historical, religious, and literary context.
