In Paradise Lost, Milton gives us a very humanized version of Satan. In a 125 word blog, discuss why you think it’s so effective. What are the characteristics of Satan that stand out to you, and what does Milton’s version of Satan suggest about sin?
The way Milton describes Satan is not how we picture him. We picture him big, red, and with horns on top of his head. When in reality he is just a man. And I think that’s why Milton’s description of him is effective. He said that he was beautiful and so on and so forth. He was beside God before he fell and was an angel along with the other that fell with him. Milton brings the mortality to Satan. He is not a lizard man, just a man.
