Evil Children In Religion Literature And Art

Evil Children in Religion, Literature and Art explores the genesis, development, and religious significance of a literary and iconographic motif, involving a gang of urchins, usually male, who mock or assault a holy or eccentric person, typically an adult. Originating in the biblical tale of Elisha's mockery (2 Kings 2.23-24), this motif recurs in literature, hagiography, and art, from antiquity up to our own time, strikingly defying the conventional Judeo-Christian and Romantic image of the child as a symbol of innocence.

Fallen Animals

Author : Zohar Hadromi-Allouche

The premise of Fallen Animals is that some how and in some way The Fall of Adam and Eve as related in the Bible has affected all living beings from the largest to the smallest, from the oldest to the youngest, regardless of gender and geography. The movement from the blissful arena of the Garden of Eden to the uncertain reality of exile altered in an overt or nuanced fashion the attitudes, perceptions, and consciousness of animals and humanity alike. Interpretations of these reformulations as well as the original story of the Paradise Garden have been told and retold for millennia in a variety of cultural contexts, languages, societies, and religious environments. Throughout all those retellings, animals have been a constant presence positively and negatively, actively and passively, from the creation of birds, fish, and mammals to the agency of the serpent in the Fall narrative. The serpent in the Garden of Eden is but one example of the ambivalence which has characterized the human-animal relationship over the centuries, both across, and within, cultures, societies and traditions. The book examines the interpretations, functions and interactions of the Fall — physical, moral, artistic and otherwise — as represented through animals, or through human-animal interactions.

In this study of a series of artist novels, individuality is elucidated by childhood experiences, sensuality and receptivity, the urge for self-expression, relation to nature, and creative work. Individuality is essentially the recognition of one’s self as a unique part of a whole, which is apt to be discovered in kinship with nature and expressed in aesthetics that stem from an appreciation of nature. The featured novels are Willa Cather’s The Song of the Lark, M. Allen Cunningham’s Lost Son, James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, W. Somerset Maugham’s The Moon and Sixpence, Dodie Smith’s I Capture the Castle, John Updike’s Seek My Face, and Virginia Woolf ’s To the Lighthouse.
