Sin and Evil: Moral Values in Literature

Framsida
Yale University Press, 2007 - 403 sidor
The confusion of sin and evil, or religious and moral transgression, is the subject of Ronald Paulson's latest book. He calls attention to the important distinction between sin and Evil (with a capital E) that in our times is largely ignored, and to the further confusion caused by the term "moral values." Ranging widely through the history of Western literature, Paulson focuses particularly on American and English works of the eighteenth through twentieth centuries to discover how questions of evil and sin--and evil and sinful behavior--have been discussed and represented.
