Satan as the Hero
• People refer to his ACTIONS :
He challenges the authority of GOD by
revolting against him ,
• They refer to his SPEECHES.
"AWAKE,ARISE OR BE FOREVER FALLEN"
"AND COURAGE NEVER TO SUBMIT OR
"BETTER TO REIGN IN THE HELL,THAN
SERVE IN THE HEAVEN"
• He also plans to take revenge from GOD
by causing the fall of man from heaven.
• He struggles to overcome his doubts and
weaknesses and accomplishes the goal of
corrupting Human kind .
According to my Views:
• Satan is not the hero , ADAM is the Hero .
• Satan's character changes.
According to Aristotle :
• Hero must have hamartia -It is not Satan,
it is ADAM who has hamartia.
• Hero must be a human being- Satan is
super natural being,So he is not the hero.
• Hero in most of the cases dies
• If ADAM doesn't die, he is expell from the
heaven and this is more than that.
• A hero never degrades.
• But Satan degrades and is fallen not only
from heaven but in our views as well,So
satan is not the hero .
• Hero is a person who fights for a noble
• Satan is fighting for getting ADAM out of
Subject of Paradise Lost is "The fall of men
from heaven" due to his 1st disobedience.
Subject is not the fall of Satan ,So Satan is
not the Hero , Adam is the Hero.
• People think that Adam doesn't show
bravery so he is not the hero but actually
he has not given the chance of doing so.
• Satan deceives Adam and deception is
not the heroic deed.
• Satan is an evil and evil cannot be the
• So in the light of our above arguments it
can be concluded that Satan is not the
hero,rather it is ADAM who is the HERO.
