Because Milton was on the wring side of the politics, he barely survived. He went blind but that did not stop him from writing. - Paradise Lost was originally 10 books but there was a revised version that had 12 books (split 2 books into 4) Themes - Journey  the descent to underground - Broad/vast settings - Conflict  wards and intervention of supernatural creatures - Begins with epic invocation. Grand and lofty style - Epic similes – army of the hero, national importance of hero Focus on the first book - Innovativeness continues in the first book. - He shaped our cultural perceptions. When someone asks you about the Genesis, Adam and Eve, it is very different. Milton said that Eve ate APPLE, not the Genesis said it. - Men’s first disobedience for the tree - The use of the word “justify” takes legal approach. He is kind of like god’s lawyer. He is justifying the god’s words to men. - The fall that the rebellions physically changed are addressed directly and described from his perspective. It shows how powerful he was. He keeps blaming the god here. - The question of who is more powerful has been frequently asked here – Saint is clearly the loser.
