Allusion and the Tree of Knowledge

Katherine Mansfield quite purposely wove an allusion into "The Apple Tree." The allusion is to the Biblical story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden that occurs in Genesis 3-4. In this blog, describe the allusion in the story and the parallels between Manfield's selection and the story of Adam and Eve. How does the allusion affect the reading of Mansfield's story?
