    The Egyptian Book of the Dead: A. was a guide book for immortality that included nothing but a single mantra to be memorized for the journey B. was a guide book for immortality that focused on the actions that the living had to perform on behalf of the dead C. was a guide book for immortality that included amulets and magic spells for the journey. The title of Steinbeck’s classic is taken from the story of Cain and Abel in the Book of Genesis – a tale of fratricide that echoes strongly throughout this book. East of Eden is set in Salinas, California – like so much of Steinbeck’s fiction – at the start of the 20th century.

    * Theatre /{{Cain}}'' ''Theatre/{{Cain}}'' by Creator/LordByron tells the story of CainAndAbel but through Cain's eyes. Being the TropeMaker for that trope, Cain is interpreted as a ByronicHero and AntiHero, viewing him as symbolic of a [[FourTemperamentEnsemble sanguine temperament]], provoked by Abel's hypocrisy and sanctimony.   THE CURSE OF CAIN According to the Bible, Adam & Eve had two sons, named Cain and Abel. Cain became a farmer and Abel a herdsman. One day, the brothers went before the lord to offer the fruits of their labors. Abel brought “fat portions from the firstborn of his flock”. Cain, on the other hand, being a farmer, brought the fruits of the soil.

    The Final Fantasy series has drawn inspiration from various real-world religions and mythologies, and incorporated elements of them into the fiction that makes up the series. The recurring summoned monster, Leviathan, is based on the biblical sea monster Livyatan (לִוְיָתָן). Though the word means "whale" in modern Hebrew, it has been interpreted to be a fearsome sea monster from.   There is something very primal about it. Going back to origins of western drama, to ancient Greek tragedy, those are so often about revenge and about family conflict. If you think about the Bible, the story of Cane and Abel; Hamlet alludes to that in the play – the Cain and Abel idea, the sort of primal curse of the brother killing a brother.
