It's the kind of literature that pushes you to think about voice and characters. Much of the modern conceptualization of Hell is based upon Hellenic mythological influences and verses from Revelation taken out of context. Maybe it is both, hidden in plain sight The only few that know, illuminated by the false light! I first read Paradise Lost when one of my teachers recommended it during a devotional session at school. He has the best lines, and even his actions would be laudable by most Christian standards excepting, of course, starting a war in heaven. It is a part of our everyday lives.
John Milton was the Jack White of his day. I am not sure we get the answers to these questions unless we look very close, I am of those that rather remain with the questions. Milton is even more ambitious than these classical poets, however, as his subject is not just heroic men, but the struggle and tragedy of all humanity. It was an epiphany weekend for me, one which transformed my soul, and remains in many ways an anchor for my faith. In the early cantos he is powerful, persuasive and godly though he, ultimately, becomes corrupted by his own selfish desires and ruins himself. But by identifying his muse as the divine spirit that inspired the Bible and created the world, he shows that his ambitions go far beyond joining the club of Homer and Virgil.

This raises the question as to whether it really is an epic or not. The 50-word review that launched a thousand trolls: Fuck your misogyny. However, this requires that one absolutely believe this assertion without ever testing it. However, like the Odyssey, the events that occur before, and after, this part of the play are narrated to us by the archangel Michael as he tells Adam the past and the future.
In these two sentences, Milton invokes his muse, which is actually the Holy Spirit rather than one of the nine muses. Soon had his crew Op'nd into the Hill a And dig'd out ribs of Gold. It changed almost everyday since I grew big enough to understand that not every stranger could be trusted. Satan accepts that he has been defeated, but his pride is still too great to ask God for repentance.

I absolutely loved this epic poem! Analysis The beginning of Paradise Lost is similar in gravity and seriousness to the book from which Milton takes much of his story: the Book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible. This is the story of the Fall of Man from Eden, the temptation of Adam and Eve by the fallen angel Satan, and the loss of their almost tangible relationship with God, however, later on, we realize the most beautiful story, is that of the fall of Satan, his descent into Tartarus, his role in the Angelic War, and his quest to destroy God's most precious creation, humanity. God arranges all his creation according to rank, and Satan upset this order by trying to do battle with God himself, the supreme monarch of all. Among these more prominent devils are Moloch, who later becomes a god requiring the sacrifice of children, Astoreth the ancient fertility goddess called Astarte , the sea-monster Dagon, the animal-headed Egyptian gods, the ancient Greek gods, and lastly Belial, a lustful and violent god who will corrupt places like Sodom. In this case, we might fall in with Blake, and suggest that Milton was the Devil's man, not because he wanted to be, but because he carried biblical rhetoric to its rational conclusion. I find no great epiphanies in it, or divine inspiration.
