Lecture Details

Milton (ENGL 220)

Book Nine and the depiction of the Fall are presented. Adam and Eves dialogue -- especially their perspectives on labor, temptation, and the nature of the garden -- is examined. Satans strategic temptation of Eve is closely analyzed. At the lectures conclusion, Adam and Eves new fallen sight is discussed, with particular emphasis placed on the reference to the "veil" of pre-fallen innocence. Overall, the tension between doctrinal and subversive perspectives on the pre-fallen hierarchy of Eden is underscored.
