    One thought on “Cain a Mystery”

    1. Remek delo!Ovakoiznajem da sam i previše slaba na Bajrona, "uklete pesnike" i sve što tu ima svoje korene. Romantizam je oblast mog pretežnog naučnog/istraživačkog interesovanja, ali i umetnički pokret koji me očarava, u kome se duhom i dušom pronalazim, koji me ideološki zanosi. Bajron je moja prva i možda najveća književna ljubav. Čovek-mit, pesnik-mit, prečesto potcenjivan zbog kontroverznog života, a opet, nemoguće je odvojiti biografiju od njegovog stvaralaštva, kada su se [...]

    2. I love fleshing out what scripture leaves out. And after listening to Springsteen's "Adam Raised a Cain" and reading Steinbeck's East of Eden, I was perfectly pumped to tackle the story of the origin of murder.This story feels a lot like Paradise Lost, you know the hundred plus year wait was nothing for Satan and couldn't be happier that he made it back into the pop culture lexicon, but what I really loved about this play was how much you get to see inside of Cain and really discover who Cain is [...]

    3. Īsa, apburoša ludziņa par Kainu kā pirmo romantisko dumpinieku Ādama ciltī. Skarba kritika Dieva attiecību veidošanas stratēģijām. Bonuspunkti par veģetāro diskursu divu altāru salīdzinājumā.Ļoti simpātiskas vērtības. Protams, es būšu Sātana un pirmā slepkavas pusē, ja viņi aizstāv cilvēka tiesības patstāvīgi domāt un saglabāt pašcieņu.

    4. Upea pienoisnäytelmä! Lord Byron kuvittanut kielellä Vanhan testamentin tarinan veljeksistä Kain ja Abel laajempiin sfääreihin. Kain on Jumalalle niskuroiva isoveli ja Abel Luojaansa palvova pikkuveli. Eeva, Aatami, Abel ja veljesten vaimot Adah (Kainin vaimo) ja Zillah (Abelin vaimo) rukoilevat ja uhraavat Jumalalle muistellen menetettyä Paratiisia. Kain ei lähde mukaan tähän kuvioon vaan lähtee Luciferin matkaan eetteriin, avaruuteen ja Haadekseen saadakseen lisää tietoa esimerkik [...]

    5. English/ Turkish reviewI wish I never read it."Cain" made me question myself and eternity and this fact scares me. Scares me to the death. What if I find out the reality and it's different than the whole story told us?Keşke okumasaydım.Kendimi ve ebediyeti sorgulamağın ağırlığı altında eziliyorum ve ölesiye korkuyorum. Gerçekleri öğrenmekten korkuyorum. Ya her şey bize söylenenlerden çok daha farklıysa?

    6. This is the story that makes you question everything you have been taught about Christian morality, dogmas and religion in general.I like how Byron uses the well-known biblical story of Cain and Abel and reinterprets it. In the Bible, Cain is a bloodthirsty killer, a criminal who killed Abel of jealousy. But in this mystery Cain is a rebel, a philosophical thinker who is struggling to find answers about the meaning of life and death and also sees the suffering of mankind just because his parents [...]

    7. The 2nd play I read by Byron and so far my favorite. It makes you think. It makes you question religion and the world too. The Story is the same old one we are all familiar with, but in this version, there is something that puts more sense to the old one. A great way into the minds of men and a fascinating avant garde scene in Act 2

    8. 1st Reading, Nov 2011: A perfect follow-up to my latest reading of Paradise Lost.2nd Reading, Apr 2013: Not quite as good as I thought the first time through. Thematically it is sound, and the poetic vision is profound, but somehow the execution is less than perfect.

    9. Lavoro molto difficile da commentare, probabilmente più del "Manfred". Byron prende un episodio biblico ben noto, quello di Caino e Abele, e costruisce una pièce in tre atti che va in qualche modo a ribaltare il dogma del peccato di Caino. Caino, il primo uomo che uccise un suo consanguineo, pecca: ma pecca per ignoranza, in un universo in cui la conoscenza è peccato e Dio induce volutamente in tentazione, come se gli esseri umani fossero suoi giocattoli. Caino pecca per innocenza.In un mondo [...]

    10. I hate not giving one of my favorite poets a glowing review. However, in the case of Cain, I was disappointed. Important background note, by the time I got around to reading this poem, I had already read and loved Milton’s masterpiece Paradise Lost. I found myself comparing Cain to Milton’s work, which may not be entirely fair. On another level, my disappointment came from being turned off by the obvious, and belabored, parallel of Cain’s involvement with his sister to Byron’s real-life [...]

    11. There's great dialogue here between Cain and Lucifer. As with a lot of other Byron works, Milton is all over this.
