A Dramatic Mystery in Three Acts by Lord Byron
  • By Fabre D'Olivet
Product Description
Cain: A Dramatic Mystery in Three Acts by Lord Byron is a play written by the famous English poet, Lord Byron. The play tells the story of Cain, the biblical figure who murdered his brother Abel, and his struggle with the concept of sin and the idea of God's justice. The play is divided into three acts, each focusing on a different aspect of Cain's story. In the first act, Cain is shown as a proud and rebellious figure who refuses to accept God's authority. In the second act, Cain is forced to confront the consequences of his actions and the reality of sin. In the final act, Cain struggles with his own mortality and the idea of divine justice. The play is known for its powerful language and its exploration of complex philosophical themes. This edition of the play, translated by Fabre d'Olivet, offers a fresh perspective on Lord Byron's classic work.Discover the esoteric significance of this ancient drama. �������Cain can be conceived as the action of compressive force, and Abel as that of expansive force. These two action, issues of the same source, are hostile from the moment of their birth, according to the manner by which everything exists in nature. They act incessantly the one upon the other, and seek reciprocally to dominate and to be reduced to their own nature.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations. Because we believe this work is culturally important, we have made it available as part of our commitment for protecting, preserving, and promoting the world's literature in affordable, high quality, modern editions, that are true to their original work.
