Eve's Various Children
Fairytale: English III
Setting, Plot & Characterization
The setting is in the first Bible years after Adam and Eve got kicked out of the garden of Eden. They were banished and had to build their own home on the raw Earth.
The plot is that Eve is only showing the Lord her beautiful children when he comes to visit for the first time since they were banished. This causes conflict because her ugly children have to be hidden, until Eve realizes that the Lord is giving all her children gifts. When she then realizes the Lord is giving them all gifts so she got her ugly children out. The Lord gave the ugly children gifts that weren't as good as the others so Eve is concerned and mentions it to the Lord.
The characterization of Eve is that she is worried about what the Lord will think of her ugly children which comes off to me as shallow. Adam isn't really mentioned much other than he is Eve's husband. Eve has 12 ugly children and 8 beautiful ones, that is about all the story says about them.
