內容簡介

普立茲非小說獎及美國國家圖書獎最佳非小說類獎得主史蒂芬‧格林布萊特,繼《推理莎士比亞》,再度推出全新作品─調查人類起源最偉大的創世紀真相

新歷史主義批評家史蒂芬‧格林布萊特以充滿雄心壯志的歷史調查作品聞名,這次他將探討人類最長遠的起源歷史,創世紀中亞當與夏娃的故事。亞當與夏娃僅出現在幾篇古代經文中,卻如同一面鏡子,真實反射出人類長遠的慾望與恐懼,既是對人類存在讚美的詩歌,也是關於人類悲慘的黑暗寓言。格林布萊特深入追蹤亞當與夏娃寓言的過往,揭示幾世紀以來龐大的神學、藝術和文化資產,都與這對虛構人物有深遠的共鳴,甚至影響了猶太教、基督教、穆斯林及數以百萬的人們。他認為聖經起源的故事不僅關乎科學研究,更是人文科學最值得持續探索的真義。
 
Stephen Greenblatt―Pulitzer Prize– and National Book Award–winning author of The Swerve and Will in the World―investigates the life of one of humankind’s greatest stories.


Bolder, even, than the ambitious books for which Stephen Greenblatt is already renowned, The Rise and Fall of Adam and Eve explores the enduring story of humanity’s first parents. Comprising only a few ancient verses, the story of Adam and Eve has served as a mirror in which we seem to glimpse the whole, long history of our fears and desires, as both a hymn to human responsibility and a dark fable about human wretchedness.

Tracking the tale into the deep past, Greenblatt uncovers the tremendous theological, artistic, and cultural investment over centuries that made these fictional figures so profoundly resonant in the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim worlds and, finally, so very “real” to millions of people even in the present. With the uncanny brilliance he previously brought to his depictions of William Shakespeare and Poggio Bracciolini (the humanist monk who is the protagonist of The Swerve), Greenblatt explores the intensely personal engagement of Augustine, Dürer, and Milton in this mammoth project of collective creation, while he also limns the diversity of the story’s offspring: rich allegory, vicious misogyny, deep moral insight, and some of the greatest triumphs of art and literature.

The biblical origin story, Greenblatt argues, is a model for what the humanities still have to offer: not the scientific nature of things, but rather a deep encounter with problems that have gripped our species for as long as we can recall and that continue to fascinate and trouble us today.
