Analysis of the Consequences of the Disobedience to the Great God/Gods in Paradise Lost and “Pandora’s box”

- In John Milton’s Paradise Lost, Milton narrates the story of Adam and Eve, but on a deeper level, figuring out the motives, feelings, and emotions of each character while also introducing the story of Satan/Lucifer and all of his complexities.

Greek Mythology gives a similar anecdote which compares with John Milton’s story very much: the story of Pandora and Epimetheus. “Pandora’s Box” also relates the story of how evil sprits came upon the world thorough Pandora’s disobedience....   [tags: Literary Analysis ]

In the early nineteenth century, the popular hero of the day was the romantic hero. Mary Shelly gives a great picture of this hero in her novel Frankenstein.

Analysis of Paradise Lost by John Milton

- John Milton seeks to simply “justify the ways of God to men” with his timeless tale of the war between Heaven and Hell, leading to Lucifer being exiled from Heaven to deceiving God’s creation of man in Paradise Lost. I believe Milton is attempting to demonstrate the beginning of the root of all evil by exploring the fall of Lucifer and subsequently Eve’s fall in response. He begins with describing God creating another universe with divine justice, in order to redeem Himself. The pristine creation God named Earth, required a redeemer, thus the emergence of Jesus Christ who offers to sacrifice himself for the sins Adam and Eve were thought to make....   [tags: battle, doctrine, satan]

However, to be compelled to do the right thing does not signify and in no means guarantee that an internal battle between good and evil is not being fought, or that good will win. Sometimes, more often than not, the evil, wrong, immoral side of the fight presents such an alluring personal gain that these “Good Men”, no matter how compelled to do the opposite, succumb to it....   [tags: Morality, Good and evil, Paradise Lost]
