    It is interesting how Milton takes figures that are mentioned briefly in the scriptures and turns them into major characters. It is also frightening how Milton was able to make God and Satan 3 dimensional as opposed to simply good (in God's case) and evil (in Satan's case). This book is not for everyone. 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).

    Paradise Lost Book 1, John Milton Paradise Lost is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English poet John Milton (–). The first version, published in , consisted of ten books with over ten thousand lines of verse. A second edition followed in , arranged into twelve books (in the manner of Virgil's Aeneid) with minor revisions throughout and a note on the versification/5(29). The word Satan is the English transliteration of a Hebrew word for “adversary” in the the definite article, the Hebrew word denotes “the adversary” par excellence, mainly in the Book of Job, where the adversary comes to the heavenly court with the “sons of God.”His task is to roam the earth (like a contemporaneous Persian official) seeking out acts or persons to be.

    Milton’s Paradise Lost is a poem of epic proportions that tells of Satan’s attempts to mislead Eve into disobeying God in the Garden of Eden, by eating from the tree of knowledge. His interpretation of the biblical story of Genesis is vivid and intense in its language, justifying the actions of God to men. John Milton employs classical rhetorical techniques in "Paradise Lost" to accomplish Satan's temptation of Eve which begins on line and ends with line of Book 9; however, Satan's oration resembles pejorative sophistry and Milton uses Ciceronian arrangement for Satan's argument. Milton envisions Satan as a clever, cunning creature who purposely misleads Eve--an innocent.
