A history of the exegesis of Genesis 1-3, discussing Eve, Adam, Eden, Adam's first wife, heresy, asceticism, and related topics. As one contributor notes, "Much of the power of the Genesis myths comes from our conviction that the intrigues of the garden are really over us, that they embody and explain our sexual arrangements in some primordial and primitive way" (Mary Rose D'Angelo). Also introduces the reader to some "alien, strange, comic, and fantastical interpretations of Genesis 1-3" (from the introduction by Gregory Robbins).
