    same they differ fundamentally on many levels. The main difference between the two stories is the narrator, in “Eve’s Diary” Eve describes her experience of the narrative, whereas in “Adam’s Diary” Adam tells his very different perspective of similar events. The structure of “Adam’s Diary” and “Eve’s Diary” is set up in the same fashion of telling the story through days of the week.

This sin is not pointless, as it shapes Adam from a flawless human into a wise human, one who has or is learning from their mistakes (279 lines 763-764). However, it is detrimental to Adam’s view of his life and the world(s) around him (298 lines 558-573). Even after the banishment of Adam and Eve, Adam continues to ask questions.
