Eric Rhode takes the Genesis narrative and interweaves it with others: with Paradise Lost , with the wanderings of King Lear, with Piero della Francescas painting of the Nativity, with Bunuyans listening in to a group of women as they sat at a door in the sun, talking about a new birth.This is not ordinary story-telling. It is autobiographical writing against the grain. Rhode calls it a form of anti-autobiography. He suggests that our need for meaningful stories may blind us to the fact that truth of its nature does not always take symbolic forms. Rhodes re-telling of the story of Adam becomes an exploration of proto-mental states, in which tales can exist that need no tellers.
