A Journey with Johnny

Understanding Each Perspective

Concerning the creation of Adam and his request to God for a companion, it is not very surprising that in the argument between him and Eve in Book IX he takes the side of them working together. Eve, however, had been created from Adam and despite her short expedition by herself immediately following her birth, she has not yet been given the opportunity to be apart from Adam long enough to miss and desire his companionship again.

The thought process that occurred in Adam as he observed the animals Eve was not able to experience for herself. It seems in this bicker between them that solitude and contemplation is what she desires, perhaps she wishes to develop more as an individual rather than the dependent it seems Adam wished and wishes her to be.
