    Paradise Lost written by John Milton is a detailed version of the book of Genesis from the Bible. Both stories revolve around a similar basic plot however, in Paradise Lost, the characters are portrayed differently in a negative sense. Paradise Lost gives the character Eve more reasons for being tempted into eating the fruit from the forbidden. Revard, Stella, The War in Heaven: “Paradise Lost” and the Tradition of Satan’s Rebellion (Ithaca, NY, ). Shawcross, John T., “ An Early View of Satan as Hero of Paradise Lost,” Milton Quarterly 32 (), – 5.

    Paradise Lost has since influenced numerous poets and writers, including many of the Romantics, William Blake, George Eliot, Thomas Hardy, and T. S. Eliot. HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms/5(). Extraordinarily, the 12 books of Paradise Lost expand on just a few verses of the Old Testament: first, those explaining God’s formation of man, his creation of the garden in which stood the forbidden ‘tree of knowledge of good and evil’ and his birthing of woman from man’s rib, then those dealing with the ‘subtil’ serpent’s temptation of Eve.

    Eden Lost is similar to the book of Genesis because its narrative comes from the chief pages of Genesis, chapters one through four. My thesis is: While the Book of Genesis portrays Satan as an evil adversary, Milton ‘s Paradise Lost presents him as a more sympathetic character. Possibly non a hero, but an anti-hero. This paper examines the exegetical traditions, Jewish and Christian, on the Genesis motif of the prohibition of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, and on Milton's treatment of the theme in Paradise Lost.

Paradise lost and the Genesis tradition book In the book of Genesisthe passage teaches the story of how Satan tempts Eve into causing the act that leads to the “fall of mankind”.

Of this biblical account, is where John Milton gained inspiration for the idea of is work, Paradise Lost. Paradise Lost is similar to the book of Genesis because its story comes from the main pages of Genesis, chapters one through four. My thesis is: While the Book of Genesis portrays Satan as an evil antagonist, Milton’s Paradise Lost presents him as a more sympathetic character.

Martin (John Martin), Paradise lost and the Genesis tradition. Paradise Lost is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English poet John Milton (–). The first version, published inconsists of ten books with over ten thousand lines of verse.

A second edition followed inarranged into twelve books (in the manner of Virgil's Aeneid) with minor revisions : John Milton. In Book X God’s Son pronounces the sentence of expulsion. In the last two books Adam and Eve abandon paradise. Paradise Lost is an epic poem.

Milton chose the epic genre because of the greatness of the subject. He follows the typical epic conventions in his masterpiece, such as the opening with the statement of the theme. Milton opens Paradise Lost by formally declaring his poem’s subject: humankind’s first act of disobedience toward God, and the consequences that followed from it.

The act is Adam and Eve’s eating of the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge, as. Milton's avowed aim in Paradise Lost is to justify the ways of God to man.

His emphasis, therefore, is somewhat different from that of Genesis. Paradise Lost is an elaborate retelling of the most important – and tragic – incident in the book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible.

Genesis narrates the creation of the world and all its inhabitants, including Adam and Eve, the first human beings. Initially, everything was just perfect; God gave Adam and Eve the Garden of Eden to live in, there was no death, no seasons, all.

Then Adam and Eve sinned. They ate from the forbidden tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Before this, they had only known good. Now, knowing evil, they could not remain.

But, once again, just as he did in Book I, Milton disassociates Urania from the classical tradition and equates her with Christian inspiration, literally (in Book I) with the Holy Spirit.

This treatment of Urania epitomizes one of Milton's goals in Paradise Lost — to compose a Christian epic.The faded roses of the wreath become the first thing to wilt and decay in Paradise.

Adam’s sin is not trying to gain forbidden knowledge or move beyond his rank, but placing his love for Eve above his love for God, which is again upsetting God’s proper order.

Milton portrays the unfallen couple as having innocent flaws (Adam as over-curious.It seems to me that John Milton meant for Paradise Lost to be more of a pro-Protestantism and anti-Catholic work, and that he thought re-writing parts of the Bible, the all-important, central work.
