The language of [[Emily Dickinson]] was informed by the Bible. [[Mark Twain]] used the book of [[Genesis]] as the basis for ''From Adam's Diary'' and ''From Eve's Diary''. ''The Rise of Silas Lapham'' by [[William Dean Howells]] uses the image of [[Jacob]] wrestling with the angel as an important metaphor. Many poems by [[T.S. Eliot]] employ images drawn from the Bible. [[Ernest Hemingway]] titled his first novel ''[[The Sun Also Rises]]'', after a quote from [[Ecclesiastes]], and [[Flannery O'Connor]] drew on the gospels for the title and theme of ''[[The Violent Bear it Away]]''. The title of [[Robert A. Heinlein]]'s seminal [[science fiction]] novel ''[[Stranger in a Strange Land]]'' is a direct quote from [[Exodus]] 2:22: "And she [Zippo'rah] bare him a son, and he called his name Gershom: for he said, I have been a stranger in a strange land." [[KJV]] <sup>[[Wikisource:Bible%2C_English%2C_King_James%2C_Exodus#Chapter_2|3]]</sup>
