In the introduction, this paper suggests to call some classics of world literature which commonly show the destiny of a human who is unable to escape from sin and its results "Narratives of the Fall of Man." To test the propriety of the naming, as an example, it tries to read Macbeth of Shakespeare in light of the story of Adam and Eve from chapter 3 of Genesis. This attempt is in fact based on the expectation that such reading will be a meaningful method to discern the substance of the evil and evildoers in Macbeth. In the body, the paper first observes the words of the serpent of Eden and the ones of witches and apparitions of Macbeth. The serpent and the witches are all tempters of the protagonists, and in both cases their words appear true at first but are eventually revealed false. This observation also shows how vulnerable every human is to temptation. Second, it compares the results of the fall and its aspects in Macbeth with those in the story of Adam and Eve. Like the man and his wife of Eden heard the sound of the Lord God and hid among the trees of the garden, the Macbeth couple heard the knocking at the gate of their castle and hid in their bedroom. The especially stressed knockings, the poor and unreasonable excuse of the hero, and his night gown which is a covering like the sewed fig leaves are devices reminding the readers of Macbeth of the story of the Fall in Eden. Even the sleep deprived from Macbeth as a curse or punishment is figuratively called "the daintiest food" and has a relation to the fruit of the trees freely enjoyed by Adam and Eve before the Fall. Lastly, it stresses the similarity between the expression used in the monologue of Macbeth in the scene of the death of Lady Macbeth and the phrases in the curse of God to Adam. Macbeth`s words "the way to dusty death"(5.5.17-23) reflects God`s phrases, "dust you are and to dust you will return"(3:19). It confirms that the evil in Macbeth has the features of the archetypal evil. This supports the assumption that it would be possible to read out a narrative of the fall of man from every story of evil. It would be worthwhile to approach to other classics of world literature using the same method.
