Notes

  • Epigraph:Then the Lord God said to the snake, 'You will be punished for this; you alone of all the animals must bear this curse: From now on you will crawl on your belly, and you will have to eat dust as long as you live. I will make you and the woman hate each other; her offspring and yours will always be enemies. Her offspring will crush your head, and you will bite their heel.'
    - Genesis 3: 14-15
  • This poem is written in seven parts, numbered i-vii.
