The Rise and Fall of Adam and Eve

The Story that Created Us

Selected as a book of the year 2017 by The Times and Sunday Times



What is it about Adam and Eve’s story that fascinates us? What does it tell us about how our species lives, dies, works or has sex?



The mythic tale of Adam and Eve has shaped conceptions of human origins and destiny for centuries. Stemming from a few verses in an ancient book, it became not just the foundation of three major world faiths, but has evolved through art, philosophy and science to serve as the mirror in which we seem to glimpse the whole, long history of our fears and desires.

In a quest that begins at the dawn of time, Stephen Greenblatt takes us from ancient Babylonia to the forests of east Africa. We meet evolutionary biologists and fossilised ancestors; we grapple with morality and marriage in Milton’s
Paradise Lost; and we decide if the Fall is the unvarnished truth or fictional allegory.
