I’m doing a weekly reading of Paradise Lost, usually posted on a Sunday morning. Search ‘paradise lost’. The entries are numbered. I’m using this page to keep a list of things I want to think about at some point -and may or may not come back to.
- The bigger question ( ‘what first caused the infernal serpent?’) is one we haven’t come to yet (Paradise Lost 4: Milton turning on a sixpence and heading towards Hell)
- Where am I going to find some way to think about ‘pride?’
- Bk1, line 70 – ‘Eternal Justice’, Can it really be just that a place should be prepared in which ‘hope never comes that comes to all’?
- Bk 1 Lines 97-99 – Satan’s first account of his motives and feelings – fixt mind, high disdain, sense of injured merit.
