About This Item

1904 1st ed Mark Twain Adam's Diary Fall of Man Creation Illustrated Satire

"Wheresoever she was, there was Eden."

Mark Twain, Diaries of Adam and Eve

Mark Twain's 'Diaries of Adam and Eve' are first-person memoirs that follow along from the beginning of creation, getting to know each other, and their final days on earth after 'the fall'.

'Adam's Diary', first published in 1904, was Twain's comedic and satirical take on the Book of Genesis. It was filled with illustrations by Strothmann; however, most of them were considered pornographic in nature when it was first published in the United States.

Synopsis

A prime example of the wit of Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens)...his satire of the book of Genesis, written in the format of Adam's journal. " MONDAY -- This new creature with the long hair is a good deal in the way. It is always hanging around and following me about. I don't like this; I am not used to company. I wish it would stay with the other animals. . . . Cloudy today, wind in the east; think we shall have rain. . . . WE? Where did I get that word-the new creature uses it."
