The fall of man occurs in all the works in which "anarchy is loosed upon the world" and where faith is diminishing. After the fall of man, the works introduce the characters and speakers to their fallen worlds where essences and God are lost and only death exists.

By accepting that they are in a fallen world, being "true to one another" and opening up to nature.
