The Laughter of Adam and EveeBook - 2013
Near the beginning, just after the fall, was laughter-at least as Jason Sommer imagines it. In the title poem, Eve catches Adam's hilarity over what passes for a tree outside of Eden, their laughter a heady combination of longing, defiance, and perhaps even relief, through which they find they now possess "a knowledge of evil that is good," an understanding that will carry them through life after paradise. Through settings mythical, historical and biblical, through characters that range from Gunga Din to St. Kevin of Glendalough, the poems in this book often search out meaning in the.
