A dramatic work in the traditon of Milton's "Paradise Lost" and J.R.R. Tolkien's "Ring Trilogy". It is a work which chronicles the death of innocence and the birth of a passionate and powerful love that survives for time and eternity.

Calvin Miller has a wonderful talent for poetic/lyrical writing.

In this piece he retells the first portion of Genesis up to Adam and Eve's leaving the Garden of Eden. I absolutely loved the dialogue between "Earthmaker" and Adam before Eve's coming. The relationship between Adam and Eve could truly be described as 'the great romance'. "Slithe" is much more sinister than the serpent in the Bible. I felt more sympathetic toward Eve's dilemma than from the original story in Genesis. Miller seems to challenge the reader to recognize ones own temptation for sin through the actions of Eve. But his writing also insists that we understand the love that caused Adam to sin along with her.
