Puritanical work
Late 1650's

First published in 1667 - 10 books Context Overview 1. The Importance of Obedience to God
In the epic poem Paradise Lost, the story is about how Adam and Eve defy God's orders and in the end, they are punished for their actions
2. Sin
Throughout the poem, the author is constantly reminding us that everyone is a sinner in their own way, along with Adam, Eve, and also Satan (obviously not as extreme)
3. Justifying God’s ways
What this means is that Milton must explain that the nature of God is to turn everything, even evil, to good, as when he creates earth and men to replace the bad angels or when he sends Christ to redeem fallen humans Themes (cc) image by jantik on Flickr The poem begins by Satan wanting to start another war with God. He travels and builds a bridge between Heaven and Hell and finally makes it to Earth. God - Victor Frankenstein
Banished their creations Connections to Frankenstein Meanwhile, Adam and Eve are created and are tending the garden. When Adam and Eve split their duties by working separate sides, Satan finds Eve alone and convinces her to eat from the Tree of Knowledge. God had now found that Eve had disobeyed his rules of not eating from the tree as well as Adam because he wouldn't be able to go on without her. They both receive punishments of men being the provider by hunting and growing their own food and having women suffer the pain of childbirth. Adam - Frankenstein
