    but new and modern poets must be taken into consideration and taught in the classroom too. This will provide a more full history of literature, broadening students’ horizons. It is for this reason I would urge you to teach the rap song called “Forbidden Fruit” by Jermaine Lamar Cole (stage name J. Cole). The song serves as a valuable teaching tool as it contains several technical elements, alliteration in the title we’re already off to a great start, however the technical aspect of the song also serves

    In the Bible, the story of creation occurs in the garden of Eden.  The book of Genesis tells the tale of Adam and Eve, whom God allowed to eat the fruit from any tree in the garden except for that of the central tree of knowledge.  Unfortunately, with the serpent’s deceitful encouragement, Eve enticed Adam to eat from that banned tree.  The fruit opened Adam’s eyes to the reality that he was naked (Gen. 3:7-20).  Interestingly, the second paragraph of “Araby” alludes to the Genesis account of Eden

    Susan Donnelly’s “Eve Names the Animals”, is a short poem written to try to show the independence and importance of Eve which is not shown in the biblical story in Genesis. She uses this as her platform to show that women are able to do the same jobs as men, and that even one of the most important jobs, naming the animals, could be done by a woman. Eve feels as though Adam went about naming animals carelessly, and only named them based on appearance. It is a story of attempted separation and self

    Robert Frost’s “After Apple-Picking” Set in the evening of a late autumn day at the end of harvest time, Robert Frost’s “After Apple-Picking” can be interpreted in two ways. The first is that the poem is an insight into Frost’s thoughts on the triviality of life, especially his own. The second is that it is a metaphor for the Bible story of Adam and Eve. Whatever the interpretation, there is a tension between feelings of regret and satisfaction that is created and sustained throughout the entire

    could have theoretically done to be obeyed. In other words, I will discuss why a mild threat might have worked better in this case. What is forbidden is desired. This age-old adage is the source of Adam and Eve’s demise. So it is only natural to conclude that the only way to redeem the two besides walling up the Tree of Knowledge, is to make the desired fruit somehow less desirable. One possible solution to that conundrum is by threatening them with a milder form of punishment; say if they were threatened

    unequal pushes Eve to seek independence from Adam and thus causes the Fall of mankind. Milton’s presents Eve to be more equal to Adam than the biblical presentation of their relationship since in Genesis Eve is merely Adam’s wife who eats the forbidden fruit; when eve is created Genesis it states ‘she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man’ (Genesis 2.24). Her main character construct in Genesis is that she was created from the body of man. Whereas Milton gives Eve an individual self

    Eve’s Speech to the Forbidden Tree in Milton’s Paradise Lost In Book IX of Milton’s Paradise Lost, Eve makes a very important and revealing speech to the tree of knowledge. In it, she demonstrates the effect that the forbidden fruit has had on her. Eve’s language becomes as shameful as the nakedness that Adam and Eve would later try to cover up with fig leaves. After eating the forbidden apple, Eve’s speech is riddled with blasphemy, self-exaltation, and egocentrism. The first part of

    In Milton’s Paradise Lost, before the fall Adam and Eve live in harmony with one another, enjoy the provisions and comforts of nature, and have a direct relationship with God and the angels. Unimpeded with conflict, they live in innocence, working not out of necessity but to make their home beautiful, speaking not to clear up misunderstanding but for the pleasure of it, and anticipating a time when they will rise up to the order of angels and be favoured with a closer communion with God. The fall
