    an exquisite job of portraying his vision of paradise in his writing. Satan journeys to Earth and lands on Mount Niphates were he overlooks paradise. As he draws closer and observes the perfection of Eden, he is enraged by the obvious love for Adam and Eve, who were the reason behind God creating the garden.

    Genesis 1-3 and the Downfall of Mankind People hold many differing opinions about Genesis 1-3. Some people believe that God didn't want Adam and Eve to have the knowledge of good and evil because it would make them as gods. The purpose of this essay is to show that Adam and Eve caused the downfall of mankind. Now, to the untrained eye, it may be possible to interpret the aforementioned text as having certain "scheisty" tendencies coming from both the serpent and, believe it or not, God himself

    misogynistic society. Milton states Eve's location in the great chain of authority of his time quite clearly with her inferiority to man repeated frequently throughout the epic, especially amplified in Book IV and Book IX. Milton uses the character of Eve to represent the ills that can befall mankind after she (the woman) breaks the chain of authority in which she was placed. A twenty-first century reader might perceive Milton's theodicy on a woman's place in society to be inhumane as well as appalling

    Gene and Phineas, and their story could be paralleled to the biblical story of Adam and Eve. The similarities can be seen in the way in which in both of the stories, everyone is living in perfect harmony and peace until something comes along to disrupt it. Also in how the main characters do something out of jealousy, greed, and selfishness; and in addition, how Finny's fall out of a tree relates to the “Fall of Mankind.” Adam was the first man that God created and was created to be the image of God himself

    It’s one of the most famous stories to ever exist, the story of how two people changed what defines us as humans. It’s the story of Adam, Eve, a serpent, and the unbecoming of mankind, the Fall of Man. This iconic account has been the premise for many works over the centuries. Today, Lord of the Flies by William Golding is considered one of the most influential novels of our time, not only for its adventurous story of stranded boys on a lost island, but also because of its allegorical tale of the

    Mary, Eve, and Lilith in King Lear, Othello, and Macbeth Feminist criticism often explores the symbolic or archetypal use of the Biblical figures of Mary and Eve in literary criticism. One figure which seems appropriate to such discussions, but so far neglected it seems, is the figure of Lilith. Indeed, in the case of Shakespearean criticism, Lilith seems an appropriate model at times for such characters as Goneril, Regan, Lady Macbeth, and so forth. Accordingly, it is my intention to explore

    defeat rather than victory (Milton 323). This is one instance where Milton shows that Christ is the true hero of Paradise Lost rather than Satan. When God heard of man’s disobedience, He looked to His Son, and His Son said he would go and judge Adam, Eve, and Satan (Milton 308). Christ judged fairly, and after judging them, clothed them outwardly and inwardly (Milton 312). This was Christ forgiving them for their sins (Milton 313). Only a true hero can forgive someone who has done them wrong.
