By eating the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, she indulges herself within the fallacious fate of the devils corruptive nature. Milton’s intrinsic writing style blatantly reveals irony within the first sentence. Referencing upon the consequences of Adam and Eve’s sins as the “fruit”, he proposes relevance to that of the literal apple as well as the 'figurative fruits’ pertaining towards their actions. Within this assertion
Satan, like a leader hiding his own pain of losing heaven encourages other fallen angels to rise and tries to gain what he have lost. This heroic character is shown in his speech when he says, “The mind is its own place, and in it self can make a Heav’n of Hell, a Hell of Heav’n.”(Nicole, 2011). One of the important character of Satan in Paradise lost, Book I is his pride, which is his strength as well as weakness. Hubris of Satan is said to be his strength as due his pride gives him the courage to fight against God and is way to regain his dignity, on the other hand it is his weakness as pride is the reason of he being in hell. Realization on mistake committed is only the quality of tragic hero which Satan does not possess in Epic Paradise lost, book
The Lorax speaks for the trees and his family and gives many wise words towards the Once-ler on what his decisions might cost him. Greed and Wealth in anyone can overpower their personality and change them into an entirely different person then they really are. In this story by Dr. Seuss, there is a simple plot for a complicated
The poem’s intense focus on his nature presents a psychological profile of a being with a conflictive personality. Though Satan is described by some as the hero of Paradise Lost, two factors argue against Satan as the hero. The first is Milton’s description of him in Book 1, which shows us that although he has brilliant qualities, his spirit and heart are set on purposefully doing harm and leading others astray from the way of God. The second is that although it is only lightly hinted at in the early books, The Son of God enters the plot later and is the true hero. In this essay, I will further analyze the personality and

Bosch represents the hellish counterpart of the heavenly mansions in both the pictures, dominating the foreground with new motifs. Although the basic meaning of both the pictures is simple, the artist comments on an unpleasant aspect of human nature. Bosch has incorporated traditional iconography in both the scenes through dominating background images. Hell is a nightmarish place in both the triptychs. The Haywain and The Garden of Earthly Delights narrate two distinct stories in terms of their central panels.
Dante’s Inferno is known for its striking imagery between a sin and the punishment given in Hell. While playing the role of God, Dante the poet seems to be a completely different person than Dante the pilgrim, who embarks on a journey through nine circles of fiery Hell. The Inferno becomes more than just an understanding of Hell when readers, as well as Dante the pilgrim, hear the stories of characters who don’t seem to belong there. The fact that characters, such as Francesca and Virgil, tell Dante their own story of how innocent they are, completely intensifies the feeling that a tragic mistake has been made, especially when the character Dante starts to feel pity. Many people like myself found Francesca 's story to be tragic, and found Dante’s discernment surprising when he placed her in Hell.
He gathered other fallen angel and wanted to revolt. He said, “The mind is its own place, and in itself / Can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven (254-55).” However, I disagree mind change his attitude toward Hell and Heaven, because he pointed out how painful he was in the Hell and how he admired Heaven which shows his mind doesn’t make him feel the Heaven like hell and think Hell like heaven. The actual meaning of this sentence is that your mind is a very important part of your body. What you think depends what you feel. It means, although real situation may be very tough, your mind can change your opinion of what you feel about the real situation.
Dante explores deeply the Christian hell and heaven, which includes the immediate Purgatory. This experience makes him cast his allegiance to good and God. The differences between these two stories are depicted when comparing the epic conventions, epic characteristics, and when comparing the various religious backgrounds of the times in which these two stories were written. The epic characteristics include a vast setting, supernatural forces and superhuman courage. In The Odyssey, the central character Odysseus is a war hero who is travelling back home.
His major work is “The songs of innocence and experience”, it is a collection of poems. Mysticism in the writings of Kahlil Gibran possesses a great similarity with the writings of William Blake. Mystical disappointment in the world ruined by material gluttony and hunger have been the source of their work. The idea of Good and Evil, Heaven and Hell and Regeneration and Disintegration is common in them. Kahlil Gibran like Blake speaks apocalyptically about life’s eternity and divinity of the Supreme.
