Transcript of "Paradise Lost book IV by John Milton"

  1. 1. Paper 1: The Renaissance Literature Topic: Paradise Lost Book IX ~ John Milton Student’s Name: Kaushal Desai Class: M.A. Sem-1 Roll No. : 17 Year: 2013/14 Submitted To: Maharaja Krishnakumarsinhji Bhavnagar University
  2. 2. ◘ Milton’s style  Grandly writing style  Allusions and Vocabulary  Sentence Construction  Extended Similes  Repeated Images
  3. 3. ◘ Theme: ‘Of Man’s First Disobedience’  “Assert Eternal Providence, And justify the ways of God to men”  1) disobedience 2) Eternal Providence 3) justification of God to men.
  4. 4. ◘ Character study of Adam, Eve, Satan, God & The Son • Adam- Adam is a strong, intelligent, and rational character possessed of a remarkable relationship with God. In fact, before the fall, he is as perfect as a human being can be. • Eve- Created to be Adam’s mate, Eve is inferior to Adam, but only slightly. She surpasses Adam only in her beauty. She falls in love with her own image when she sees her reflection in a body of water.
  5. 5. • Satan- He is a evil figure here but his grand tricks for human fall, that’s what make him a protagonist, and he is far from being the story’s object of admiration, as most heroes are. • God- An omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent character who knows everything before it happens. Attempting to present such an unimaginable character accurately, Milton appropriates several of God’s biblical speeches into his speeches in Paradise Lost. • The Son- For Milton, the Son is the manifestation of God in action. While God the Father stays in the realm of Heaven, the Son performs the difficult tasks of banishing Satan and his rebel angels, creating the universe and humankind, and punishing Satan, Adam and Eve with justice and mercy.
  6. 6. ◘ Temptation scene ~ Satan, having compassed the Earth, with meditated guile returns as a mist by night into Paradise; enters into the Serpent sleeping. And finds Eve alone and tries to convince her to eat the fruit of knowledge. ~ After long argument, Eve finally eat the fruit of knowledge and that’s what the major fact here.
  7. 7. ◙ Gender discrimination ♦ Eve and Adam’s Fall: ○ After the eating fruit of knowledge and they awaken and feel "this newcomer" shame and nakedness. ○ Full of high passions, regret, reproach and evasion. ○ Compare their relationship before and after the fall.
  8. 8. Adam & Eve, the first human being God’s Creation of Earth Satan’s revenge Paradise Lose Fall of mankind Eve’s eating the fruit of knowledge and then Adam too
