In The Laughter of Adam and Eve, Sommer speaks from a multitude of voices and perspectives, in short, formal lyrics as well as longer free-verse narratives. From the archetypal parents of us all, down through anonymous voices, throughout these pages, women and men speak to-and of-each other, in many roles and relations-as lover and beloved, as child and parent, as dreamer and dreamt of.
