Lec 21 - Paradise Regained, Books I-II

"Lec 21 - Paradise Regained, Books I-II" Milton (ENGL 220) This lecture treats the first two books of the sequel to Paradise Lost, Paradise Reqained. The difference in style and subject matter is described. The poem's depiction of the Son of God and Satan, specifically the characters' seeming inability to recollect any of the events of Paradise Lost or the Bible, is closely analyzed. At the lecture's conclusion, similarities between the Son's slowly developing sense of his identity and Milton's own narrative of his poetic development are examined. 00:00 - Chapter 1.
