Eve's diary /

Only humor writer extraordinaire Mark Twain could inject so much wit and hilarity into the story of Adam and Eve and the Fall of Man. This short story takes the form of excerpts from Eve's personal journal, providing a unique feminine account of the first human couple that deviates in a few important regards from the "official" version.

  • "In this short 1904 work, from late in his career, Mark Twain imagines how Adam was introduced to Eve. This new creature with the long hair is a good deal in the way. It is always hanging around and following me about. I don't like this; I am not used to company..." Twain also published a companion volume, Eve's Diary ."

  • "A humorous monologue about Eve's experiences at the dawn of creation. She is fascinated by every aspect of the new world around her and ... Adam! The following is an extract from Adam: "She is all interest, eagerness, vivacity, the world is to her a charm, a wonder, a mystery, a joy; she can't speak for delight when she finds a new flower, she must pet it and caress it and smell it and talk to it ... And she is color-mad: brown rocks, yellow sand, gray moss, green foliage, blue sky ... none of them is of any practical value, so far as I can see, but because they have color and majesty, that is enough for her, and she loses her mind over them ... If there is anything on the planet that she is not interested in, it is not in my list.""@en
  • "This whimsical piece of fiction is written as the protagonist, Eve's, diary and tells the story of her life and how she met Adam. A tour de force of Twain's brilliance and wit, the diary reflects a tenderness not found anywhere else in his writings. It is both a romantic tale added to Twain's other Adam and Eve stories and a loving eulogy to his deceased wife."
