    Lost In Judaism The year 2004 was just not a very good year overall. In this year, devastating tsunami struck multiple countries in Southeast Asia, President George W. 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. The show is questions within questions: mysteries on top of other mysteries, comedy, love stories, action/adventure and science fiction. 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…

    • 3 Pages

    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). Satan is remarkably calm in regards to what has occurred and aims to rise up against God, seeking to create as much evil as he can in the world in order to defy God and God’s goodness. Throughout…

    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…

    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…

    Milton tells the story of the Garden of Eden in rich, full detail. He expanded the tale of the Serpent trying to convince Eve to do an act forbidden by God. It was described briefly in the bible but here, though fiction, gives more of a sense on what happened. I will dissect the fifteen lines in Paradise Lost, Book IX, where the Serpent presents his argument to Eve that she should eat the fruit from the forbidden tree. This selection shows how smooth and sly the serpent is in his manipulation.…

    In this passage it becomes quite clear that Eve is consumed by the myth of Narcissus (Narcissus is the origin of the term narcissism, a fixation with the reflection or image that they portray to others. Wikipedia) Her initial reflection consumes her and is the basis for her story. She describes her reaction at seeing herself to Adam within the listening frame of Satan. This is a dialogue between a married couple that Milton sets to a framed role of Eve within the union. Eve is discussing with…
