As can especially be observed in literary works, throughout which the writer’s word choice and tone are directly affected by their own personal experiences and knowledge. Because of the inescapable personal integration into writing, there can be great difficulty in putting pen to paper in order to convey such private thoughts....   [tags: Writing, Literature, Devil, Writer]

The apparent dichotomy is explained by William Blake: “The reason Milton wrote in fetters when he wrote of Angels & Gods, and at liberty when of Devils & Hell, is because he was a true Poet and of the Devil’s Party without knowing it.” Milton’s adherence to orthodox views resulted in an uninspired portrait of Heaven....   [tags: Paradise Lost ]
