It is impossible to taste the sweet without having first tasted the sour. This is one of the many lessons found within Genesis 2.0 and more specifically the story of Adam and Eve. It is also from this twisted tale of betrayal and deceit that we gain our knowledge of mankind?s free will, and God?s intentions regarding this human capacity. There is one school of thought which believes that life is mapped out with no regard for individual choice while contrary belief tells us that mankind is capable of free will and therefore has control over hisown life and the consequences of his actions. The story of Adam and Eve and the time they spent in ?paradise?
John Milton’s Theodicy works well, the story is very well presented through this story of Man’s first fall, although, there are many things that are flawed in Milton’s story. Some examples of his flaw are from his views on Eve, as a woman who is easily persuaded, and as a female who must be constantly monitored because if she is not watched she may be easily tempted, which is not the case. He is also flawed in his account of Adam, that Adam does not know about the creation in the garden, which is not the case. And Milton is also wrong in the way that even God is depicted. Although Milton’s Paradise Lost is a well written poem and a logical theodicy, there are major flaws in the way he depicts Eve, Adam and God himself.
Hornby is able to make the issue relatively calm and ironic for the reader: “Not so bad, right? It’s a mistake, that’s all.” (Hornby, Slam 62). Although it may have been a mistake; it is bad. Sam is portrayed by Hornby as a calm, but frustrated character. By having a frustrated character, he is able to merge humour into Sam’s frustration: “It seems to me that if you never wear a condom, then you should get triplets or quintuplets” (Hornby, Slam 62).
He is influenced by the culture around him giving him his own kind of attitude towards Eve’s side. He suggests that Eve chose to sin for her own selfish reasons. As I see it, Adam is the one that expects Eve to be the beauty and to follow him through his guidance and nothing more, but Eve does not want that, she wants to be of equal authority to Adam. Unfortunately, in the story with the fruit from the forbidden tree, she stops herself from eating the fruit by using her powers for her own gain. She sees that by eating the fruit that she may die, leaving him alone to move on with someone else, Eve loves Adam and does not want to leave him behind.
He also explains that God gave them free will and right reason. Free will is the freedom to make their own decisions while right reason is “The God-given power to apprehend truth and moral law,” (Milton 2099). Adam then tells eve that they will not know when they are being tempted and that she is overconfident in their integrity. He then ultimately tells her that leaving him to go and work on a separate part of the garden, but he warns her yet again of the tempter and expresses that he just wants to be there to protect her. Eve then uses her free will to her full extent.
He was unlike his father who used his past as an excuse for his behavior.

Reuven said, “I was dating regularly now on Saturday nights (250).” There are even some differences in appearance, such as, Reuven wears glasses and he doesn’t have ear curls. Danny Saunders is an anti-Zionist, which means he opposes Zionists. Danny was great in the study of the Talmud; Reuven on the other hand was kind of slow at it. Danny never actually wanted to be a Tzakkid; he always wanted to become a psychologist. “I don’t know, Probably a psychologist (69).” He constantly showed that he thought for himself, because every problem he had, he usually solved it by himself, he never got the answer like Reuven.
His only friend in Winesburg is George Willard, who he gave a passionate speech one afternoon. He said to him, “You have the inclination to be alone and to dream and you are afraid of dreams. You want to be like others… you try to imitate them” (Anderson 7). He wants George to be unique from others and live the way he wants. He does not want him to be like others in town who does not dream.
Frankenstein refused to get help because he could always fix it. When Justine was in prison he could only think about himself, “But I, the true murderer, felt the never-dying worm alive in my bosom, which allowed of no hope or consolation” (59). Victor could have changed the course of Justine’s future if only he spoke up and admitted to what he did. But in her dying hours, he only thought of himself and what he was feeling instead of what he could do. Walton on the other hand thought of his crewmates and turned around on their wishes.
