Bush was re-elected, the Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Detroit Pistons in the finals of the NBA Championship, and last but not least, the USA Men’s Basketball team lost to Argentina in the semifinals of the 2004 Olympics in Athens. However, despite all the news of disasters and disappointments, some good things also happened in this year. For example, the Boston Red Sox won the World Series for the first time since the year 1918, Michael Phelps earned six out of his total of twenty three Olympic gold medals in this year, and Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban was out in…

    The television show Lost (2004-2010) was a very talked-about show. With its unordinary storyline, its cliff hangers and its unsolved mysteries, the show kept its audience riveted.

J.J Abrams, the producer of the show, tried to create a nail-biter, a provoking show like a good novel that never quits. The producer has created a timeless television show, touching…

    Book One of John Milton’s epic Paradise Lost hones in on the story of one very familiar main character: Satan. After Milton’s brief explanation of how and for whom he is writing the poem, Satan appears with a distraught Beelzebub after they and several others were sent to “bottomless perdition” (47).

    Authority In Paradise Lost

    When an angel opposes the power and might of God, the almighty deity inevitably banishes him from the realm of Heaven and leaves him to rule over nothing more than a wasteland. In John Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost, such is the case of Satan, a former subject of the Lord fallen from his grace. God banishes the angel to Hell, where Satan, left to ponder the quality of his newfound life, slowly accepts his fate and addresses the presumed advantage of being free from the clutches of God, whose…

    corruption and an excess of purity, characteristics that are often only seen in children and infants. The individual possesses a form of naivety to the complications of life and the world surrounding them, which when applied to adults, enables them to act in a manner that may seem out of the norm to the society they reside in as well as society now. Taking this into account, Milton’s narrator in Paradise Lost undeniably raises questions on the nature of innocence and whether or not a true form…

    dismisses an important consideration, in that although Adam self-professes that Eve is a complete woman, who is equal to him – his actions speak otherwise. For example, Adam mentions to Raphael that Eve is intellectually inferior to him and Adam neglects Eve’s questions regarding the earth and planets, while hypocritically asking the same question to Raphael later. Basically, if Adam had engaged Eve intellectually rather than physically and emotionally, the fall would not have happened in the…

    The Lost Generation is a term that poet Gertrude Stein used to describe the generation of men and women whose experiences in World War I undermined their beliefs in manhood, morality, justice, and love. Without these ideals to rely on, the Lost Generation lived an aimless existence characterized by apathy; they became morally and psychologically lost. In The Sun Also Rises, Jake and his group of friends are part of this Lost Generation, but some embody the traits more than others. Jake’s…

    • 2 Pages

    In John Milton’s Paradise Lost, epic simile is frequently used to create elaborate and sweeping comparisons that contribute to a character’s development. In Book IX, Milton compares Eve to a list of goddesses by writing “To Pales, or Pomona, thus adorned / Likest she seemed Pomona when she fled / Vertumnus, or to Ceres in her prime / Yet virgin of Proserpina from Jove” (393-6). This comparison constitutes as a epic simile because it spans multiple lines and goes into great detail. One thing that…
