Sept 3 - Matt 20:16 "the last will be first, and the first last, for many are called but few are chosen" - Milton seems so sure of himself, seems to develop very little - he does have a sense of being awesome, because everyone (especially his father) has always told him so - he is pressured to achieve something because of the expense of his education (needs to justify it) - we're beginning with some of his more difficult stuff (lots of subordinate clauses) - does he speak about private matters because he's such a narcissist, or because of another reason? - Milton says that no one should accept authority without having it proven to us, not even his own authority - at this point in his writing, he really hasn't done much to establish his authority - he has to tell us a story so that we can see for ourselves that he is a credible source - bottom of 1117 (therefore), top of 1117 (then) (since then, henceforth) - using scientific language to make us think that he is proceeding rationally through stages to make it to the point that he is at now - however, his life is far more tumultuous than he leads us to
