As Adam and Eve ate the fruit, they became naked and god cursed them by banishing them from the Garden of Eden and placing a guard around the Tree of Life. The serpent is pre-existent evil and is considered a proto, a type of Satan (devil).
Typical and Atypical Abuse Physical and emotional abuse can originate from any source but the majority of the abuse generates from parental or adult figures and is direct toward a timid figure, typically a child. The abuser commonly chooses a more timid recipient because they will be less likely to stand up against the abuser. Physical abuse is maltreatment that involves actual contact between one body part of a person and an other body part of an other person, such as hitting or slapping. Emotional abuse consists of just the opposite: maltreatment that is directed to harming the individual psychologically, such as negative comments or put downs (National Exchange Club Foundation, 2000).
The serpent eventually persuades Eve to eat from the “Tree of Knowledge”. After she eats from it, she has Adam eat from it. Shortly after, they finally notice they are naked and become self conscious and cover up. God then asks about what they have done and Eve blames Adam, while Adam blames the Serpent. God curses them, and makes Eve suffer through labor and banishes both of them from the Garden of Eden.
I was not the only one trapped in this cycle of mistreatment. The abuse extended to my younger sibling and people considered companions of my parents. Upon reflection of the multitude of abuse I recall being a witness to my father beating a man until his whole face

So little knows Any, but God alone, to value right The good before him, but perverts best things To worse abuse, or to thir meanest use. Beneath him with new wonder now he views To all delight of human sense expos'd In narrow room His fair large Front and Eye sublime declar'd Absolute rule; and Hyacinthine Locks Round from his parted forelock manly hung Clust'ring, but not beneth his shoulders broad: Shee as a veil down to slender waist Her unadorned golden tresses wore Dishevell'd, but in wanton ringlets wav'd As the vine curls her tendrils, which impli'd Subjection, but requir'd with gentle sway...(IV, 287-308) Adam and Eve are tall and erect like the trees, pure and nude, uncovered like the rural landscape. Adam's hair cut short, almost as if the pair had pruned it. Eve's body seems to be supported by the garden, but her hair is described as wild, unadorned and wanton, not unlike the landscape outside of Eden: "Steep wilderness, whose hairy sides/ With thicket overgrown, grotesque and wild..." (IV, 135-36).
Eve’s hunger to become independent from Adam and all she is commanded to do is similar to Satan’s situation in that their yearn for power and singular identity lead them to revolt against their creator. Her desire to separate from Adam is first seen when she is introduced to the audience in her state of narcissism. She sees a reflection of herself in a pond and is in awe of her beauty “of sympathy and love,” (IV, 465) which shows the parallelism to Satan’s own arrogant vanity. He catches on to this similarity they share and decides she will be an easy target of persuasion. He quickly takes charge and plans how he will lead her to eat the apple from the “Tree of Knowledge,” which is the only tree that God prohibited to pick fruit from. Satan first catches her attention by being a serpent who speaks; something she had never encountered before. He smooth talks her into really listening to him by focusing his words around her and how much better life could be if she just took a bite

In The Stranger, the author exposes the audience to many unhealthy relationships that may or may not be identified. In part one of The Stranger the novel introduces Salamano, Meursault’s neighbor, and his dog who is in an abusive relationship some may consider physical and verbal. This type of relationship is most remembered throughout the book because it is physical abuse but is it so different from the relationship Meursault had with his deceased mother? Some readers argue that no harm was inflicted onto the mother by Meursault, therefore, cannot be considered an abusive relationship but neglect is still on the table for a factor in their connection. The correlation between Salamano and his dog can be compared to Meursault and his mother in many ways but each link has different details. The relationship Salamano has with his dog is more loving than what Meursault had with his mother.

To understand this novel, one has to be familiar with the classic Christian stories in the Book of Genesis. One particular story they have to be familiar with is the story of Adam and Eve. Adam was created on the sixth day that Earth was and he was created in God’s image. He was put into the Garden of Eve and was given everything he could possibly need. The same day, Eve was created out of Adam’s own rib. They were to spend eternity in the beautiful Garden of Eve. One day, Eve had an encounter with a snake in the forbidden tree. The snake promised Eve that if both she and Adam were to eat from the forbidden tree, they would have the same power as God. Eve believed this and brought Adam to the forbidden tree. When they ate fruit from the tree,
Danny Furman Richard De Prospo ENG 210-10 4 May 2015 The Two Side of Abuse There are two sides of abuse to every harmful relationship: the victim and the victimizer. This relationship can tend to put stress on someone in order to have them do something they wish not to do or experience an event they wish not to experience. This aspect represents the victim side of abuse. The person or oppression in the relationship that puts stress on another is the victimizer as this side of the relationship can attempt to force ill-will upon their targets. This is the forceful side of the destructive relationship and is always the root of the problem. The characters from Generation X, Less Than Zero, and Twelve undergo a series of harmful relationships that can be construed as a relationship between a victim and victimizer. Some of the characters from each book are the victimizers, while the others are the victims.
However, evil soon entered the garden in the form of a serpent. One day when Eve was walking in the garden she encountered the evil serpent who encouraged her to take a fruit from one of God’s forbidden fruit trees. The serpent succeeded in deceiving Eve to take a fruit; she then ate the fruit and shared it with Adam. Then God became angry with Adam and Eve for betraying Him. To punish Adam and Eve, he ejected them from the garden and subjecting them to mortality, painful childbirth, sin and shame.
Since the time of Adam and Eve, parents have played a major role in upbringing children and reproducing more generations. In most societies, the father has been the backbone of the family and played a major role in providing support and stability to the family. Yet, the role of the father differs from a family to another. While some fathers focus only on feeding and educating their children, others focus on every aspect of their children’s lives. The father’s leadership often drives the children to have a close relationship with the father. Sons often see the father as their role model and build a father-son relationship. Yet, the father-son relationship can be either weak or strong depends on the father’s concept of parenthood. The
by eating the fruit even though he didn't want to. Eve was brainwashed by the serpent because she was mentally weak. Adam and Eve later go on to get married and have two kids named Cain and Abel. Cain ends up killing his brother Abel because Abel’s heart was faithful and was devoted to God and his commitment was trustworthy in God’s eyes. When Cain realized that God was not pleased with his sacrifice but accepted Abel’s, he became extremely jealous and felt a strong hatred in his heart and jealous of his brother and killed him out of envy. One thing that I noticed when it came to gender roles was that the serpent understood who to manipulate. God directly talked to Adam then next in line was Eve. The serpent understood that Adam was more than
