The Death of Sin and the Sin of Satan When discussing the fate of the fallen, be them angel or man, it is important to become acquainted with Sin and Death, the offspring of Satan. In Paradise Lost, Book 2, from lines 746 to 814, Milton offers what it is to sin and the price of sin with descriptive imagery through Sin’s words. Both Sin and Death embody and characterize their names as both allegories and personifications. With close inspection of the passage, the ideas of sin and death come to life and they live dark and tortuous lives. Milton uses Sin to describe their monstrous tale and further shows how Sin is sinful, but also how she too is fallen through the use of her language and figurative speech.
It is demonstrated again and again in The Scarlet Letter how Chillingworth undergoes a drastic change, what causes that transformation, and w... ... middle of paper ... ...ee characters in the novel. A life may be consumed by the evil nature of sin and lead someone into the fold of the devil, as shown through Chillingworth. Or, sin may utterly destroy someone’s whole soul and existence through guilt, for example Dimmesdale. But fortunately, sin can bring about positive consequences in the life of a sinner, depending on the strength of that person and how they grow, such as the character of Hester. Through the novel and these characters, sin and its effects are proven to be varied.
In Paradise Lost, Satan is a primary character and expresses a full range of traits and provokes a wide range of responses from the audience. Hildegard’s Devil appears seductive more than anything else and he demonstrates the allure of sin. The singing in Hildegard’s vision before the play begins warns of the “most foul deceiver” (382). In the play, the Soul at first appears content among the Virtues, before feeling burdened by its body and the desire to explore the world. The Devil appears at this moment of weakness to appeal to the Soul’s feelings and exploit its vulnerabilities.
Sheena Mammen Professor Lynch English 102 H April 3, 2014 Milton’s Paradise Lost Milton’s depiction of Satan in Paradise Lost makes it likely for us to identify with Satan. The way Satan acts is both smooth and deceptive. He embodies the characteristics of someone who would make a strong leader. The rhetoric Satan employs enables the audience to get insight into his internal state of mind. Satan is able to gather an army and help bring upon the fall of “Paradise” through his rhetoric and devious ways.
Othello represented these traits through character, Iago, as he reveals his true nature of evil by diminishing people lives and becoming the downfall of many people around him. “Hell and night/ Must bring this monstrous birth to the world’s light” (I, iii, 394-396). Though Iago may not have a purpose of participating in many of his act of evil, he presents it as a self-obsessed driven supremacy. He plots to destroy Othello and to gain dominance by observing each weakness from Othello, and takes advantage of it. He uses his aid of human nature to help with his evil schemes and plots throughout the play.
He is an amazing artist that uses his mind instead of a picture or visual guidance. I honestly don’t relish painting things how they are but how I see them, just like Picasso. Another one of my favorite artists is Claude Monet. He is more of an impressionist. An impressionist is an artist that creates a painting as if you would see in real life, for example a realistic painting (The Art Story Modern Art Insight.
The different hues of color the artist used to show pastel made the painting’s value “light.” This is all the design elements that the artist used to create this painting. This painting was created differently than most paintings that we see, but it is

This allowed for more attention to detail as well as the ability to use foreshortening and shadowing. The use of shadowing is more than obvious on the Kylix with the figure of a youth sitting on a stone surrounded by large apatropaic eyes. The ability to foreshadow is shown in many other red-figured works that were done during and around that time.
He rallies the other fallen angels and even inspires the readers to be moved by some of the things he states. Milton’s epic can be seen as a way to celebrate the evil character however, when one knows the background of the author it is obvious that this appearance of Satan as a hero is meant as a metaphor for the fact that Satan and his evil ways can seem appealing and how easily one can be caught in his trap. Milton uses his skill with words and literature to make the Devil appear endearing or heroic to the those reading his poem yet the poem symbolizes how one can mistake the evil of Satan for something good. Milton’s heroic Satan is only a symbol of the demon he truly is in disguise.
In conclusion, as readers, we are drawn to Macbeth and Lady Macbeth because they are so interesting, despite them being evil and murderers. When they keep the action and drama of the play going they attract our attention. In addition to that, we are drawn to them because they are complex characters that we like to try and solve and because reading about their wickedness makes us believe that we could never commit as much evil as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth did.
