Transcript of Garden of eden Allusions

Song Connection
Gates of Eden by Bob Dylan-
I believe Dylan’s song is alluding to when Adam and Eve get banished from the Garden of Eden. During the song things clearly go from a happy "everything-is-perfect" mood to a very depressing and sad mood. Bob Dylan also says many times that the only place that isn't sad and sinful is inside the gates of Eden.
Garden of eden Allusions

When God made the heaven and earth, pieces of land had yet to appear on earth. He created man from the dust of Earth, gave him a soul by breathing life into him, and placed him into a beautiful garden. In the garden there was all sorts of trees and fruits and was called the Garden of Eden. God didn't want him to be alone so he made all sorts of creatures, but none was suitable for him. So while the man was asleep he took a rib from the man and created a woman. They would both be named Adam and Eve.
As we already know, the man was called Adam and the woman was called Eve. In the middle of the garden, there is the tree of knowledge holding good and evil. They were told not to eat from that tree or they will die. Although within the tree, lived a serpent and it convinced Eve to eat one of the tree's apple. She then gives some to Adam. They realize they are naked and sew leaves to cover themselves. God figures out what they've done and he curses them.
Literature Connections

Film/TV Connection
The Truman Show-
In the Truman show, Truman Burbank’s is an unwanted pregnancy. So his dad creates this fake world around him and makes his life the best show on earth, called “the Truman show”. It has an allusion to the Garden of Eden because everything around Truman is perfect. His happy everyday perfect life is made for him. Then Truman gets suspicious and starts to want to venture out away from his Hollywood set. This alludes to the tree of knowledge because as soon as Adam and Eve eat from the tree of knowledge their eyes get open to “reality”. Just like Truman when he first starts to get suspicious because of falling lights and fake stars almost hitting him. He starts to realize that things are fake and really awkward.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe-
This movie has many allusions to the Garden of Eden. One that sticks out to me is when Edmund eats the Turkish delights that end up being enchanted. The Turkish delights represent fruit from the tree of knowledge that Adam and Eve ate from in the Garden of Eden. Another allusion is the world of Narnia itself. The world of Narnia is supposed to represent the Garden of Eden. The Narnia’s where supposed to live their n peace so they could prosper. But the witch stopped them from doing so because she brought sin to the land.


In the beginning of Genesis, God created heaven and earth on the first day. On the second day God created light and darkness, and call the darkness night and light day. On the fifth day God created animals. On the sixth, he created man and women in his own image. And after every day God would make his creations, he would say
"it is good" but on the sixth day he said "it is very good". On the seventh day he rested.
Of Mice and Men
• Curley’s wife: apple to Lennie and Eve (brings sin/death to the world trying satisfying temptation)

• Garden of Eden/Farm Lennie and George want: both “perfect Earthly place”

• "A water snake glided smoothly up the pool, twisting its periscope head from side to side; and it swam the length of the pool and came to the legs of a motionless heron that stood in the shallows. A silent head and beak lanced down and plucked it out by the head, and the beak swallowed the little snake while its tail waved frantically." - Page 97

This passage shows the brush area George and Lennie gather to after killing Curly's wife. It compares with the Garden of Eden and upcoming death of Lennie/Adam and Eve’s innocence

• George's last name is Milton which refers to John Milton who wrote "Paradise Lost".

Paradise Lost
• An epic poem that involves the story of the Fall of Man set in the Garden of Eden. Milton wrote it because he wanted to "justify the ways of God".

• It basically gives the setting and overall effect of Adam and Eve.

• “With loss of Eden, till one greater Man
Restore us, and regain the blissful Seat”
- Book One
