Milton (ENGL 220)
This lecture treats the first two books of the sequel to Paradise Lost, Paradise Reqained. The difference in style and subject matter is described. The poems depiction of the Son of God and Satan, specifically the characters seeming inability to recollect any of the events of Paradise Lost or the Bible, is closely analyzed. At the lectures conclusion, similarities between the Sons slowly developing sense of his identity and Miltons own narrative of his poetic development are examined.
