God choose to put the knife in the center of the garden and told them not to touch it as a test and they were of understanding that to touch it meant death but were disobedient.

Das verlorene Paradies Paradise 1 by John Milton.

Sabrina Honestly, sis, what were you expecting??? Yes, the dynamic of Adam and Eve can come off as misogynistic, but Milton is just following A the social norm and B following his religious pardaies. Every word either one of these says has to be applauded by the angelic choir, who apparently have nothing better to do than to tell God has brilliant he is.

Were they alternate universe or did they pre-date this creation cas

Das Verlorene Paradies : Episches Gedicht, Erste Haelfte

Satan is the id and God is the superego. The story itself is complete and coherent. The dae son of God being in heaven before his human birth seems kinda odd and gets into theological discussions of the parasies and the nature of Christ which hold little interest for me. I was left with the distinct feeling that Heaven is deadly dull, and a profound sympathy for snakes. The whole thing can be broken down to an attitude towards knowledge. I finally have finished it, it felt like forever I have been reading this.


Das verlorene Paradies by John Milton (1 star ratings)

Most bits were boring. So, Satan is able to make ‘a Hell out of Heaven and a Heaven out of Hell’ as he fully intends to do, yet fails. English professors must love this! The whole son of God being in heaven before his human birth seems kinda odd and gets into theological disc Not much original thought or plot in this.

Samuel Johnson was awed by the poem in part because he was awed by Christianity itself and was largely in agreement with Milton. A very difficult read. Geez, what a pain in the lower extremities. Oh well, I guess I won’t be continuing on with Paradise Regained. This endless cycle of revenge is introduced to the world by Sin, an actual character, a beautiful women with the waist of a serpent attacked by a multitude of dogs who and this is very important sprung from the head of Satan like Athena, goddess of wisdom, from Zeuswho then incestuously raped her, to produce Death, who incestuously raped Sin repeatedly, begetting infinite torment via ravenous dogs.

John Milton’s Paradise Lost is one of the greatest epic poems in the English language. But also glad it’s over with. None ever wished it longer than it is. The “good” angels are also not exactly easy to agree and like, I know a few gals that if talked down by some “angel” the way Eve was they would kick them so hard on their undefined sex that they wouldn’t need any wings to reach heaven.


I found that sections when the author listed angels or place names dragged, as did many of the conversations. If the fallen angels weren’t already demented when they fell, they must be after years of listening to his mental, incisive babble.

Refresh and try again. Future reader, you have been forewarned, do not prevail this castigation over yourself by curiosity or fear of failure in Lit class, it’s not worth it.

It was annoying to find that Milton depicted pre-lapsarian Eve as already subservient to Adam. Evil is stupid, but not this stupid. I’ll close for now in Jesus In end, I’ll give a 2 star rating just because the Devil is such a sensible character. Had I read this book with the perspective of a student, or perhaps even as a potential instructor, I suspect my view of the twelve-book poem would have been far more favorable. Still, Milton’s way of Christianizing the Old Testament seems rather aggressive.

I don’t like the way Eve was portrayed, Milton’s version of her representing women was a very sexist view that women are incapable to resist temptation, to make level headed decisions, to be strong enough to survive without men.

: Das verlorene Paradies (German Edition) (): John Milton: Books

John Milton was an English poet, polemicist, man of letters, and a civil servant for the Commonwealth of England under Oliver Cromwell. Basically it’s a poetic summary of the Bible.

One of Satan’s most important ‘features’ as a character in PL is his unrest in seeking revenge. It is true that Milton does have some scriptural grounding here. Or would you say that your two year old knows not to play with a knife even if you tell them not to? The themes Milton wrestles with are nothing less than cosmic:
