THE CREATION OF WOMAN 

 

 

This old Oriental legend is so exquisitely charming, so superior to 

the Biblical narrative of the creation of woman, that it deserves to 

be reproduced in WOMAN: HER SEX AND LOVE LIFE. There are several 

variants of this legend, but I reproduce it as it appeared in the 

first issue of THE CRITIC AND GUIDE, January, 1903. 

 

At the beginning of time, Twashtri--the Vulcan of Hindu 

mythology--created the world. But when he wished to create a 

woman, he found that he had employed all his materials in the 

creation of man. There did not remain one solid element. Then 

Twashtri, perplexed, fell into a profound meditation from which 

he aroused himself and proceeded as follows: 

 

He took the roundness of the moon, the undulations of the 

serpent, the entwinement of clinging plants, the trembling of 

the grass, the slenderness of the rose-vine and the velvet of 

the flower, the lightness of the leaf and the glance of the 

fawn, the gaiety of the sun's rays and tears of the mist, the 

inconstancy of the wind and the timidity of the hare, the vanity 

of the peacock and the softness of the down on the throat of the 

swallow, the hardness of the diamond, the sweet flavor of honey 

and the cruelty of the tiger, the warmth of fire, the chill of 

snow, the chatter of the jay and the cooing of the turtle dove. 

 

He combined all these and formed a woman. Then he made a present 

of her to man. Eight days later the man came to Twashtri, and 

said: "My Lord, the creature you gave me poisons my existence. 

She chatters without rest, she takes all my time, she laments 

for nothing at all, and is always ill; take her back;" and
