Cain has been ranked as one of the two best dramatic poems written in England in the nineteenth century. Because of its religious heterodoxy, which veiled a political iconoclasm, and also because of Byron's notoriety, Cain stirred up a storm among Tories and clergymen "from Kentish town to Pisa." From 1821 to 1830 more was printed about its eighteen hundred alarming lines than about the twenty thousand of Don Juan. One solemn Frenchman even translated the work in order to supply his countrymen with a text that he could then rewrite and confute. After the initial controversy, readers began to regard Cain not merely as revolutionary propaganda but as a fictional portrait of common youthful experience: a sequence of aspiration, discontent, uncertainty, confusion, misunderstood isolation, fear, frustration, anger, and finally a rash, inevitable, but futile revolt that led to a future of hopeless regret. Truman Guy Steffan here presents a text, arrived at by collation of the first and several later editions with the original manuscript (presently in the Stark Collection of the Miriam Lutcher Stark Library at the Harry Ransom Center, the University of Texas at Austin). The first eight essays, which comprise Part I, cover a number of literary topics: Byron's defense of his purposes in Cain and the relevance of his dramatic theory to the poem; the characterization that is an ideological confrontation, a revelation of personal conflict, as well as a rendering of individuals who have an existence independent of the author; the principles that controlled Byron's absorption and expansion of biblical materials; the integration of the imagery with the dramatic substance; the incongruities of the language; the metrical heterodoxy; and a description of the manuscript and of Byron's insertions. Part II contains the text of Cain, accompanied by notes on the variants, the manuscript cancellations and additions, certain linguistic details, and the scansion of some unusual verses. Then follow annotations on allusions, sources, and analogues, and on a few passages of the play that have elicited unusual conflict over interpretation. Part III provides a history of Cain criticism, from the opinions of Byron's social and literary circle and of the major periodicals and pamphlets to the more complicated contribution of the twentieth century. This important work stands not only as a valuable addition to Byron scholarship but also as an illuminating record of the changing critical and cultural attitudes from the early nineteenth century to the 1960s. Steffan has done a remarkable job in bringing together and synthesizing an enormous body of material.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1830 edition. Excerpt: ...not more complete. Nor is the soul, though confined in, strictly chained down, as Lucifer would have it, to that servile mass, except in such as, despising the revelation before mentioned, choose such bondage. That revelation, by its moral efficacy, when sincerely received, chains the material, enfranchises the immaterial, part of man. For although it seems true, that the soul (given to every individual immediately by God, yet as part of man through Adam, not pure, or sinless, or perfect) in its ordinary operations, beholds and acts from representations made on that part of the human frame (as may afterwards be again noticed) which is adapted to the reception of impressions made upon it from without, viz. the organ of sensation, the brain; nor has the soul the means of acting absolutely without the body; yet is the soul not to be denied the possession of other powers, by which it can reflect upon itself, and discriminate between what it beholds, and make its choice. Besides this, the soul, as a spirit, is susceptible of impressions from spirits, or spiritual agents. Hence Jesus Christ exhorts his disciples to ask of God the gift of the Holy Spirit, promising its donation; the effect of whose powerful influence is, to renew and raise the soul, in its nature and tendencies, above the imperfections of its material tenement, and give it a freedom from it, even while confined to it; and to make it victorious over them in time, and in eternity; however liable to suffer, intermediately, from their annoyances. The soul of man therefore is capable of immediate communion with its maker, through his Spirit. And the soul of man is the man, emphatically speaking: though the union of soul and body constitutes the entire human nature. In these views of...

George Gordon Byron, 6th Baron Byron, but more commonly known as just Byron was a leading English poet in the Romantic Movement along with Keats and Shelley. Byron was born on January 22nd, 1788. He was a great traveller across Europe, spending many years in Italy and much time in Greece. With his aristocratic indulgences, flamboyant style along with his debts, and a string of lovers he was the constant talk of society. In 1823 he joined the Greeks in their war of Independence against the Ottoman Empire, both helping to fund and advise on the war's conduct. It was an extraordinary adventure, even by his own standards. But, for us, it is his poetry for which he is mainly remembered even though it is difficult to see where he had time to write his works of immense beauty. But write them he did. He died on April 19th 1824 after having contracted a cold which, on the advice of his doctors, was treated with blood-letting. This cause complications and a violent fever set in. Byron died like his fellow romantics, tragically young and on some foreign field.
