Lecture Details

Milton (ENGL 220)

In this second lecture on Paradise Regained, the three temptations are examined and Miltons unusual departure from their account in the Gospel of Luke is discussed. The poems tacit assertion of the superiority of knowledge and ethics over action is probed. Considerable time is spent examining the Sons rejection of classical literature. Finally, Book Fours allusion to the riddle of the sphinx serves as a springboard to a consideration of the poems Oedipal elements.
