A core theme

"And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden; But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it..." (Genesis: 2-3).

How much literature has been shaped by words like these? There simply wouldn't have been a story if Adam and Eve hadn't eaten the forbidden fruit.
