Milton (ENGL 220)
In this final lecture on Paradise Lost, Book Twelves justification for the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the garden is examined alongside the Genesis account. The nature of Miltons God, whether literal or liberal, is examined at length. The poems closing lines are closely read, with substantial attention paid to Miltons final, complicated take on the poem-long consideration of Providence and free will.
