The Lady of Comus and Eve of Paradise lost
Halling, Rita M.
MetadataShow full item record
Within the massive structure of his greatest work, Paradise Lost, Milton has created a powerful and unique character in epic literature. With skill mastered through the years, Milton presents a woman who embodies ideal womanhood, who realistically falls into disgrace, and who ultimately evokes our sympathy. This warm and human treatment of Eve in Paradise Lost is a marked change from Milton's earlier treatment of the cold and allegorical Lady of The Mask at Ludlow Castle.
