They were encouraged in this undertaking by the notion that arrows that they shot into the sky fell back dripping with blood, so that the people really believed that they could wage war against the inhabitants of the heavens Sefer ha-Yashar , Chapter 9: According to Josephus and Midrash Pirke R.
According to another midrashic account, one third of the Tower builders were punished by being transformed into semi-demonic creatures and banished into three parallel dimensions, inhabited now by their descendants.
Although not mentioned by name, the Quran has a story with similarities to the biblical story of the Tower of Babel, although set in the Egypt of Moses: Pharaoh asks Haman to build him a stone or clay tower so that he can mount up to heaven and confront the God of Moses.
Another story in Sura 2: In the History of the Prophets and Kings by the 9th-century Muslim theologian al-Tabari , a fuller version is given: Nimrod has the tower built in Babil, God destroys it, and the language of mankind, formerly Syriac , is then confused into 72 languages.
Another Muslim historian of the 13th century, Abu al-Fida relates the same story, adding that the patriarch Eber an ancestor of Abraham was allowed to keep the original tongue, Hebrew in this case, because he would not partake in the building.
Although variations similar to the biblical narrative of the Tower of Babel exist within Islamic tradition, the central theme of God separating humankind on the basis of language is alien to Islam according to the author Yahiya Emerick.
In Islamic belief, he argues, God created nations to know each other and not to be separated. In the Book of Mormon , a man named Jared and his family ask God that their language not be confounded at the time of the Tower of Babel.
Because of their prayers, God preserves their language and leads them to the Valley of Nimrod. From there, they travel across the sea to the Americas.
The confusion of tongues confusio linguarum is the origin myth for the fragmentation of human languages described in the Book of Genesis In the confusion of tongues, this language was split into seventy or seventy-two dialects, depending on tradition.
This has sometimes been interpreted as being in contradiction to Genesis During the Middle Ages, the Hebrew language was widely considered the language used by God to address Adam in Paradise , and by Adam as lawgiver the Adamic language by various Jewish, Christian, and Muslim scholastics.
Dante in the Divina commedia implies however that the language of Paradise was different from later Hebrew by saying that Adam addressed God as I rather than El.
Before the acceptance of the Indo-European language family , these languages were considered to be " Japhetite " by some authors e. Rasmus Rask in ; see Indo-European studies.
Beginning in Renaissance Europe, priority over Hebrew was claimed for the alleged Japhetic languages, which were supposedly never corrupted because their speakers had not participated in the construction of the Tower of Babel.
Among the candidates for a living descendant of the Adamic language were: The Swedish physician Andreas Kempe wrote a satirical tract in , where he made fun of the contest between the European nationalists to claim their native tongue as the Adamic language.
Caricaturing the attempts by the Swede Olaus Rudbeck to pronounce Swedish the original language of mankind, Kempe wrote a scathing parody where Adam spoke Danish , God spoke Swedish , and the serpent French.
The primacy of Hebrew was still defended by some authors until the emergence of modern linguistics in the second half of the 18th century, e.
Historical linguistics has long wrestled with the idea of a single original language. In the Middle Ages, and down to the 17th century, attempts were made to identify a living descendant of the Adamic language.
In the Biblical introduction of the Tower of Babel account, in Genesis There have also been a number of traditions around the world that describe a divine confusion of the one original language into several, albeit without any tower.
The Estonian myth of "the Cooking of Languages"  has also been compared. There are several mediaeval historiographic accounts that attempt to make an enumeration of the languages scattered at the Tower of Babel.
The LXX Bible has two additional names, Elisa and Cainan, not found in the Masoretic text of this chapter, so early rabbinic traditions, such as the Mishna , speak instead of "70 languages".
Some of the earliest sources for 72 sometimes 73 languages are the 2nd-century Christian writers Clement of Alexandria Stromata I, 21 and Hippolytus of Rome On the Psalms 9 ; it is repeated in the Syriac book Cave of Treasures c.
The chronicles attributed to Hippolytus c. Isidore of Seville in his Etymologiae c. This listing was to prove quite influential on later accounts that made the Lombards and Franks themselves into descendants of eponymous grandsons of Japheth, e.
Other sources that mention 72 or 70 languages scattered from Babel are the Old Irish poem Cu cen mathair by Luccreth moccu Chiara c.
Villani adds that it "was begun years after the Flood, and there were 2, years from the beginning of the world to the confusion of the Tower of Babel.
And we find that they were years working at it; and men lived long in those times". According to the Gesta Hunnorum et Hungarorum , however, the project was begun only years following the Deluge.
The tradition of 72 languages persisted into later times. The Book of Genesis does not mention how tall the tower was. Gregory of Tours writing c.
Its wall, made of baked brick cemented with pitch, is fifty cubits wide, two hundred high, and four hundred and seventy stades in circumference.
A stade contains five agripennes. Twenty-five gates are situated on each side, which make in all one hundred. The doors of these gates, which are of wonderful size, are cast in bronze.
The same historian tells many other tales of this city, and says: A typical medieval account is given by Giovanni Villani He relates that "it measured eighty miles [ km] round, and it was already 4, paces high, or 5.
The 17th-century historian Verstegan provides yet another figure — quoting Isidore, he says that the tower was 5, paces high, or 7.
He also quotes unnamed authors who say that the spiral path was so wide that it contained lodgings for workers and animals, and other authors who claim that the path was wide enough to have fields for growing grain for the animals used in the construction.
In his book, Structures: Gordon considers the height of the Tower of Babel. Elementary arithmetic shows that a tower with parallel walls could have been built to a height of 2.
However, by making the walls taper towards the top they Escher depicts a more stylized geometrical structure in his woodcut representing the story.
This led to its destruction as they rose up against the designers because of the insufferable working conditions. The political philosopher Michael Oakeshott surveyed historic variations of the Tower of Babel in different cultures  and produced a modern retelling of his own in his book, On History.
He attributes this behaviour to fascination with novelty, persistent dissatisfaction, greed, and lack of self-reflection. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Is it to live rough and drink much and just endure until the end comes? Is it to frolic and mingle and bask in your station while gloating over and pitying those less fortunate?
When you live a world above the rest of the population, can you continue seeing them as equals, or do they become something less than human in your eyes?
But when faced with the loss of his wife, Senlin adapts. He more than changes; he metamorphoses. We watch Senlin endure hardships beyond his imagining and, slowly but surely, become an entirely new creature.
Senlin becomes driven, focused, clever, and confident, all while maintaining a stunning optimism completely opposed to life in the Tower.
He manages to make friends when none are meant to be found. Side characters, such as Adamos, Edith, Tarrou, Oglier, Iren, and even Finn Goll are all well fleshed out and grow throughout the story.
Though she is missing for a larger portion of the novel, Marya is a lovely character whose many facets are revealed nicely through flashbacks. As the story progresses, her relationship with Senlin makes more and more sense, and the love he has for her becomes more real and poignant as he fights his way through the Tower in search of her.
I enjoyed the book immensely, though I do feel it was a bit overhyped. The character development, as stated previously, was beyond reproach. The Tower itself was a wonderful setting, new and interesting and nuanced.
But the pacing of the story left something to be desired, stretching the plot too thin in places. I also felt frustrated at the lack of an ending, though I know this is the first in a trilogy and can see where Bancroft did attempt to provide some sort of resolution.

And as always ended up the last one to finish, but with great support from my amazing gif Sensei and awesome BR partner Craig. Thanks you "Senlin Ascends" is an extraordinary fantasy Well, I can proudly say: Thanks you "Senlin Ascends" is an extraordinary fantasy story, not quite some I used to read.
Oh "Senlin Ascends" can easily lure readers with grit, farce, extraordinary adventure and of course a great study of people and places.
On the brink of reappearing setbacks, the scheming, manipulative and deceiving side of him emerges to help him survive. As a perfect protagonist, he spots the monster in himself and gets on his tracks to reach his goal.
Muddy Shoes, I root for you. Generations have labored to build and perfect the engine. Each of you, I hope, will spend your life working to preserve it.
Because without it, we would be dangerous beasts. Senlin looked around with a start, surprised to find himself at the head of the line.
IDK, her character was interesting in the beginning as she was eager to explore the world, talented, but later on I was disappointed with her character development.
That are the two flaws I found in the story. She was a female character I waited for and together with the great amazon, they were a great joy to read about.
To my great joy I found a great monster villain, a genteel, violent and skillful assassin. I liked his super red powers and his ties to the pirate princess.
I think the best part in the book is its world-building: The presented adventures were often exciting excluding some Mexican soap opera for Holy Mary and appealing.
I liked how the author used comic spices to ease the tension or just show the absurdity, beer-go-rounds, excerpts from other books, like the one about wifemongers.
Fewer than three prospects and gentlemen will feel starved for option, and more than six will make would-be-husbands suspect they have blundered upon a harem.
Wives must be fertile and free of disease, lice, and deformity. Ugliness is naturally considered a deformity. Personal experience suggests that seventy percent of the female population fails to embody the first virtue.
The gentle reader will be unsurprised to learn that ninety-five percent of would-be-husbands might graciously be described as unhealthy.
Each ringdom has its peculiar and well created world with its own rulers, rules, aims and characters. The lowest for misery and crime.
As the stage for insane plays which entertain the wicked mind of others. As a spa relaxation for overwhelming lusts, greed and sins.
Oh and the heaven for merchants and hard work. The beauty of the rotten and wicked soul of humanity, the tower is a great symbol of it. Greed, crime, indifference, sins, slavery and lust are the main components.
An interesting and compelling read with two small flaws. There is no infodump, every piece of the puzzle comes naturally and flowingly.
Senlin is a wonderful protagonist, an "all-weather friend" and all too real. Prose, storytelling, reveals and rising of tension are great!
And what an ending! Experimental and beautifully crafted. We now have a podcast review for Senlin Ascends! Check it out on iTunes, here , or on your preferred podcatcher app!

The best way that I can think of to describe this book is to say that, while the story and world itself are richly imagined, there was something subtle that just really pulled me in and inspired my awe.
All that I knew going into it was that it is about a man that is separated from his wife so he goes through the different levels of this great tower to find her and that the tower itself is kind of bizarre.
Everything else is best experienced firsthand. Why does our innovation never extend to our conscience? All the stars, all the ratings, whatever your preferred system of rating is, this one sits at the top.
I was quite on the edge giving this a chance when I first picked it up, but the whole damn idea of having a full adventure in the mythical Tower of Babylon just struck all my fancies at once.
So how did this pan out? The story takes place in nine countries and dozens of cities. There is also a sequel and room for at least one more. Tony was terrified, but he knew that it was his only option.
He had his schedule and it was memorised to the second. He could even see the big clock on the wall that he had to work to. He watched the seconds tick down and took deep breaths to calm himself, it was not a particularly hot day, but he was perspiring profusely, so he took his handkerchief from his inside jacket pocket and stopped at a mirror to dab at his face.
He was beginning to calm down, the Valium was working. He had not thought that it would be this easy. He had a hundred metres further to walk and fifteen minutes to do it in.
He dawdled, looking at the clothes along the way, and wondered, none of it would matter soon, and he wondered whether it ever should have.
He touched some of them, as you might a flower. He knew the way, he had walked the route dozens of times. Two minutes to go and he felt his heart pick up speed.
In fact, he had been given a line not to cross, and lo and behold, there it was a metre before him. He stood on his mark, the point where two sections of the aisle carpet joined, and pretended to be reading an advertisement.
The consequences of this new form of terrorism are horrific. This sets the scene for the final battle to stamp out the leadership of the gang.
The book also goes into another subplot about a controversial book published at the same time. I guess if you like books about human emotions and not necessarily their veracity and drama, this might be a good read for you.
Oct 20, Ubik 2. Nov 29, Madelynp rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Very much about the lyrical value of language, which sounds pretentious, but only because it matches the pretension in the book.
Frederica, the heroine, is at once likeable and disagreeable, and yet you cheer for her throughout. One of the reasons that I was drawn to this book in the first place was the beginning, where Byatt introduces the novel in several ways and as someone who is unfamiliar with the rest of the series, none of them made sense at the time.
For example, the very descriptive domestic violence was hard to read, although I appreciate that the most brutal act of violence is not described in such detail.
I would highly advise this to a a professor of English, looking for something to analyze; b a something with academic dreams me!!!
Otherwise, the book requires a great deal of time and effort to get through see: I read the book with a dictionary at my side. That said, I ended up passing this book on to one of my neighbors he fits into the retiree with a great deal of patience category and then handed it off to one of my more precocious high school students.
Based on her emails, I believe that she is enjoying the book quite a bit, although the domestic violence gave her some trouble. The depth and research that went into this book boggles the mind.
Byatt is a literary critic who obviously loves the work she studies and finds conflict with Blake, Foucault, Sade, etc.
The protagonist, Felicia, was absolutely captivating. Richly developed historical back Stunning. And you will never find the love life of snails as fascinating!
Mar 27, Lucy rated it really liked it. It is painfully literary in spots, rather dull in others, and slightly snigger-inducing from time to time the fantasy novel-within-in-a-novel did not work well for me.
Byatt at her best. The novel-within-the-novel is as good as the story itself. Aug 24, Catherine rated it it was ok. Byatt continues the quartet of a thoughtful, intellectual variety.
In Babel Tower there is a yearning for change, an infectious but also perilous this is my reading idealism for new paradigms within which human society and interrelations can be conducted without the seeming shackles and despairs of the present on in which mankind or those who read mankind as such finds itself.
It is a novel of insurrection, of turnings and consequently of rebellions and challenges of the very definitions by which humans define their humanity, their lives, and their fabric of civilisation.
Criticism and theory as they are now understood are only freshly identified - the artist finds himself at the mercy of critical assumptions of psychoanalysis and marxism some truths, some not?
There are institutions that also endure: Unlike the previous books of the quartet, the perspective shifts somewhat toward a narrower cast of characters, some newly introduced within this novel, with mixed effects.
I had hoped to see more of him following the nerve-wracking events of Virgin and later, Still Life , but the picture he is found in is rather shocking - he seems, for the lack of a better word, normal.
There should be more to it, I think, more explaining that needs to be done of how he got from his strange world to such a stifling, uninteresting sense of uneventfulness.
It was disappointing to have this expectation unfulfilled. Which she did not; that almost destroyed the pleasure of reading.
Frederica seems different here, too, and if the sudden predicament of marriage the reader finds her into are cogently explained, her impulsive decision-making founded upon bodily urges are immensely frustrating to read.
Oh for someone so clever. I thoroughly appreciated the thought experiment that was Babbletower , but there was really perhaps too much sex. On the other hand, Jude Mason was refreshingly intriguing, scruffily robed as a prophet, with fatalistic views on language.
His book sparks off a lawsuit that meanders around and tries to put a chalk circle around muddy definitions of artistic merit and obscenity.
A very intelligent and enjoyable section. Nov 01, Maddy rated it liked it. Presumably he also has a lot of narrative dead ends, as Byatt sure does. Here is a non-exhaustive list of random things mentioned that go nowhere: Why is Alexander the protagonist for a few chapters?
I like snails as much as the next person but this is totally irrelevant and boring. However, I expect a little more thematic structure in a novel.
