Mark twain diary of adam and eve
The Diaries of Adam and Eve by Mark TwainGood deal of fog this morning. I do not go out in the fog myself, notes Adam in his diary, adding, The new creature does. It goes out in all weathers. And talks. It used to be so pleasant and quiet here.
Adam has a lot to learn about Eve, and even more from her, as she names the animals, discovers fire, and introduces all manner of innovations to their garden home. Mark Twains translation of the diaries of the first man and woman offers a humorous he said/she said narrative of biblical events. The great American storyteller found comfort and inspiration in the company of women, and his irreverent look at conventional religion is also a thoughtful -- and humorous -- argument for gender equality.
Eve's Diary, by Mark Twain
Mark Twain's The Diaries of Adam and Eve
I arrived yesterday. That is as it seems to me. And it must be so, for if there was a day-before-yesterday I was not there when it happened, or I should remember it. It could be, of course, that it did happen, and that I was not noticing. Very well; I will be very watchful now, and if any day-before-yesterdays happen I will make a note of it. It will be best to start right and not let the record get confused, for some instinct tells me that these details are going to be important to the historian some day. For I feel like an experiment, I feel exactly like an experiment; it would be impossible for a person to feel more like an experiment than I do, and so I am coming to feel convinced that that is what I AM—an experiment; just an experiment, and nothing more.
By Mark Twain
Mark Twain's Adam and Eve diaries are unique, American dramas, funny, beautiful and moving. Through the eyes of America's greatest humor, Mark Twain, David Barney created the world's first love story. Adam and Eve are new ideas and it is in the early days of the world. Eve chased Adam in a lively way, and Adam constantly tried to escape from her. Then Eve made a serious mistake in eating the forbidden fruit, and both Adam and Eve were exiled from the Garden of Eden.
These notes were contributed by members of the GradeSaver community. Adam is the first man. He prefers working on his property, going over the Falls or traveling around in Eden to spending time with her. Slowly, he begins to admire Eve for her excitement for the world, her curiosity, and her willingness to take care of every creature around them. His affection for her grows every day and he stays by her side until her last day. Eve is extremely curious and constantly tries to understand the world and tame all creatures around her.
