    • Abstract:
      The writer reflects on some of the stories in the Bible. After commenting on the story of the Garden of Eden, which for her is the most haunting of all such stories of paradise lost, she discusses the the raising of Lazarus as told in the Gospel of St. John. She asserts that the storytelling skills of “St. John” are so inspired that one is led to conclude that there is no story-“teller,” no mere human agent at all. She points out that this is the highest employment of the art of literature: that there seems to be no literature per se, only the most reliable reportage. She concludes that the humanly possible and the inexhaustible riches of mythopoetic storytelling, not miracles, are the Bible's enduring literary strengths.
