The Role of Satan Paradise Lost

Milton's characterization of Satan in "Paradise Lost" has been the subject of much debate for three and a half centuries. Much of this debate has centered on the issue of his true role within the work. Did Milton intend his Satan to represent the classic incarnation of evil and villany established by Christian mythology or did he carefully craft a version of Satan with which the reader is supposed to sympathize? The problem with this question is the stigma associated with Satan himself. Perhaps the most-well...

Milton's Satan in Paradise Lost

about who the hero is of John Milton’s “Paradise Lost:” Satan, Adam or Christ, the Son? Since Milton’s overall theme stated in the opening lines of Book I is to relate ‘Man’s first disobedience’ and to ‘justify the ways of God to men’, Adam must be regarded as the main hero. John M. Steadman supports this view in an essay on “Paradise Lost:” “It is Adam’s action which constitutes the argument of the epic.” Steadman continues: The Son and Satan embody heroic archetypes and that, through the interplay...

Satan: A Tragic Hero

Satan is typically viewed as the evil fallen angel who is determined to undermine God. It is not often that someone would use the word “heroic” to describe him or feel any sympathy towards him. However, in John Milton’s “Paradise Lost”, it can be argued that Satan is the protagonist and epic hero of the work. He is made to be a relatable figure and in comparison to God, it is easy to be sympathetic towards him. The epic hero can be summed up to be a good person who makes mistakes and who has...

Satan and Eve

Satan and Eve Published in 1674 John Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost is an ambitious retelling of Satan and Mankind’s fall from grace. While today it is generally thought of as a straightforward recount of the book of Genesis as interpreted by a devout Christian, the poem itself contains far more moral ambiguity then one would expect. Milton may have been unwaveringly devoted to Christianity and Puritanism, but he was also deeply distrustful of the church. He attended college with the intention...
