Adam Cast Forth Analysis

Author: poem of Jorge Luis Borges Type: poem Views: 23

Was there a Garden or was the Garden a dream?

Amid the fleeting light, I have slowed myself and queried,

Almost for consolation, if the bygone period

Over which this Adam, wretched now, once reigned supreme,

Might not have been just a magical illusion

Of that God I dreamed.  Already it's imprecise

In my memory, the clear Paradise,

But I know it exists, in flower and profusion,

Although not for me.  My punishment for life

Is the stubborn earth with the incestuous strife

Of Cains and Abels and their brood; I await no pardon.

Yet, it's much to have loved, to have known true joy,

To have had -- if only for just one day --

The experience of touching the living Garden.

Translated by Genia Gurarie

.: :.

С английского название сонета переводится: "Адам отныне изгнан". Перед нами совершенно оригинальная и не на одну другую не похожая теодицея Борхеса.
На вопрос: почему в мире существует зло и кто его виновник? – Борхес, отвечая, приводит аналогию сна: то, что здесь запрещено, там разрешено, так что мы порой просыпаемся в холодном поту от жути. Так не есть ли наша реальность сном Бога, в котором зло разрешено, ибо x спящим сознанием?
И как мы прощаем себя за сновидения, в которых невиновны, так нам следует "простить" и Бога за Его мегагрёзу, названную одним французом "человеческой комедией". Это очень по-испански.
Ещё Кальдерон сказал названием своей поэмы: "Жизнь есть сон". Борхес лишь договаривает: жизнь есть сон Бога.
