Abstract

Shiv.K Kumar, one of the prominent modern poets, is not only an illustrious writer
but also a preeminent academician. He writes poems on varied themes like death, love, sex,
and pain etc. This research paper focuses on two major poems “Birth of Adam” and “Birth of
Eve”, one of the three sections, entitled Genesis from his Sahitya Akademi award winning
work Trapfalls in the sky. During his study in Cambridge University for his PhD degree, the
poet read the Holy Bible and with that influence he created his own Adam and Eve and
presented it as if God is telling about his creation.
