    Raphael tells Adam that the reason why Adam cannot answer his question is that God never supplied him with the answers, as God had not intended for him to have that particular knowledge. God turned Eve from herself and toward Adam. After all, they are no longer chained to the fiery lake, which was their previous and worse punishment; since God may one day forgive them, it is better that they live with what they now have. Satan flies out but then begins to fall, until a cloud of fire catches and carries him. The entire work, consisting of nearly ten thousand individual lines of blank verse was dictated by Milton from memory, to a series of scribes.

    Fall'n Cherubeto be weak is miserable Doing or Suffering: but of this be sure, To do ought good never will be our task, But ever to do ill our sole delight, [ ] As being the contrary to his high will Whom we resist. Hence, as Milton wrote in a letter to Charles Diodati, "the bard is sacred to the gods; he is their priest, and both his heart and lips mysteriously breathe the indwelling Jove. Clearly, the debate in Hell weighs only different evils, rather than bringing its participants closer to truth. To the modern audience, Satan may seem heroic as he struggles to make a Heaven of Hell, but the original audience knew, and Milton's lines confirm, that Satan's war with God had been lost absolutely before the poem begins. To whom the incestuous mother thus replied.

    By "justify," Milton means more than simply to explain; he means that he will demonstrate that God's actions in regard to man are just. But peace is not really what he advocates; rather, Belial uses his considerable intelligence to find excuses to prevent further war and to advocate lassitude and inaction. Death in turn raped his mother Sin, begetting the dogs that now torment her. Adam, more and more perceiving his fallen condition, heavily bewails, rejects the condolement of Eve; she persists, and at length appeases him; then, to evade the curse likely to fall on their offspring, proposes to Adam violent ways, which he approves not; but, conceiving better hope, puts her in mind of the late promise made them, that her seed should be revenged on the Serpent; and exhorts her with him to seek peace of the offended Deity, by repentance and supplication.

From this vantage, Satan is impressed with the beauty of Eden and the pure air he breathes. To whom sad Eve, with shame nigh overwhelmed, Confessing soon, yet not before her Judge Bold or loquacious, thus abashed replied. But he who reigns Monarch in Heav'n, till then as one secure Sat on his Throne, upheld by old repute, Consent or customeand his Regal State [ ] Put forth at full, but still his strength conceal'd, Which tempted our attempt, and wrought our fall.

Gabriel and his troops prepare for battle, but God cuts the conflict short by holding up a pair of golden scales in the sky. To whom thus Adam sore beset replied. But rise;--let us no more contend, nor blame Each other, blamed enough elsewhere; but strive In offices of love, how we may lighten Each other's burden, in our share of woe; Since this day's death denounced, if aught I see, Will prove no sudden, but a slow-paced evil; A long day's dying, to augment our pain; And to our seed O hapless seed!

The body properly had neither, All of me then shall die: let this appease The doubt, since human reach no further knows. Uriel sets off to find Gabriel to inform him of the being in the guise of a cherub.

His Spear, to equal which the tallest Pine Hewn on Norwegian hills, to be the Mast Of some great Ammiralwere but a wand, He walkt with to support uneasie steps [ ] Over the burning Marlenot like those steps On Heavens Azure, and the torrid Clime Smote on him sore besides, vaulted with Fire; Nathless he so endur'd, till on the Beach Of that inflamed Sea, he stood and call'd [ ] His Legions, Angel Forms, who lay intrans't Thick as Autumnal Leaves that strow the Brooks In Vallombrosa, where th' Etrurian shades High overarch't imbowr; or scatterd sedge Afloat, when with fierce Winds Orion arm'd [ ] Hath vext the Red-Sea Coast, whose waves orethrew Busiris and his Memphian Chivalry, While with perfidious hatred they pursu'd The Sojourners of Goshen, who beheld From the safe shore thir floating Carkases [ ] And broken Chariot Wheels, so thick bestrown Abject and lost lay these, covering the Flood, Under amazement of thir hideous change.

Outside Gabriel assembles his troops and sends them to search Eden for the interloper. The Serpent me beguiled, and I did eat. After reading the following foot notes related to the passage I though perhaps Milton may be expressing his ideas through his character because it states "Milton's Adam" and does not independently refer to the character.

Thus was the applause they meant, Turned to exploding hiss, triumph to shame Cast on themselves from their own mouths. In the first place, an invocation of the muse at the beginning of an epic is conventional, so Milton is acknowledging his awareness of Homer, Virgil, and later poets, and signaling that he has mastered their format and wants to be part of their tradition.

While Satan was still an angel, she sprang forth from his head, and was named Sin. Leader of those Armies bright, Which but th' Onmipotent none could have foyld, If once they hear that voyce, thir liveliest pledge Of hope in fears and dangers, heard so oft [ ] In worst extreams, and on the perilous edge Of battel when it rag'd, in all assaults Thir surest signal, they will soon resume New courage and revive, though now they lye Groveling and prostrate on yon Lake of Fire, [ ] As we erewhile, astounded and amaz'd, No wonder, fall'n such a pernicious highth.

The sun Had first his precept so to move, so shine, As might affect the earth with cold and heat Scarce tolerable; and from the north to call Decrepit winter; from the south to bring Solstitial summer's heat.

Inexplicable Thy Justice seems; yet to say truth, too late I thus contest; then should have been refus'd Those terms whatever, when they were propos'd: Thou didst accept them; wilt thou enjoy the good, Then cavil the conditions?Sep 01,  · It is a laborious read, but John Milton's Paradise Lost is worth it.

First published inParadise Lost remains, many contend, the greatest poem ever published in English, and Milton is deemed second only to Shakespeare among the pantheon of English writers/5(6).

Lecture 9 - Paradise Lost, Book I Overview. The invocation to Paradise Lost is read and analyzed. Milton’s tenure as Latin Secretary under the Puritan government, his subsequent imprisonment upon the restoration of the monarchy, and his blindness are all briefly discussed.

John Milton's Paradise Lost is one of the greatest epic poems in the English language. It tells the story of the Fall of Man, a tale of immense drama and excitement, of rebellion and treachery, of innocence pitted against corruption, in which God and Satan fight a bitter battle for control of mankind's destiny/5(K).

Summary. Book I of Paradise Lost begins with a prologue in which Milton performs the traditional epic task of invoking the Muse and stating his purpose. He invokes the classical Muse, Urania, but also refers to her as the "Heav'nly Muse," implying the Christian nature of this work. Paradise Lost Book I O f Man’s first disobedience, and the fruit Of that forbidden tree whose mortal taste Brought death into the World, and all our woe, With loss of Eden, till one greater Man Restore us, and regain the blissful seat, Sing, Heavenly Muse, that, on the secret top Of Oreb, or of Sinai, didst inspire.
