Evolving Interpretation of Eve: Examining Eve in Literature and Poetry

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The first woman, Eve, is a Biblical character wrought with complexity: is she a feminist who seeks knowledge or a silly girl who cannot do what she is told? Poets and authors continue to portray iterations of the first woman in many of their works, from "Paradise Lost" to "East of Eden." How does interpreting Eve affect the way in which we relate to this Biblical character, and the way in which we conceive of women in the Bible, and in literature, in general?
