    Introduction. Modern criticism of Paradise Lost has taken many different views of Milton's ideas in the poem. One problem is that Paradise Lost is almost militantly Christian in an age that now seeks out diverse viewpoints and admires the man who stands forth against the accepted view. Milton's religious views reflect the time in which he lived and the church to which he belonged.   In Book III, the Son urgently petitions God the Father on our behalf rather than accepting the Father’s initial rejection of humankind for Adam and Eve’s sins. But what is true heroism as the Bible illustrates it? This is of paramount interest to Milton. Excerpts of four sentences or fewer and links may be used, provided that full.

      “Milton’s Paradise Lost: Author and Book as even surpass the lineage of epics that came before Paradise Lost. The biographical data supports my interpretation that while Milton appreciated the Greek classics, he believed that he could do better in subject material, that is, the Bible. But while this particular tidbit of information.   Adam was closer to God because Eve was corrupted first. This was not generated by Milton in an attempt to pick on women; this was found in the creation story in the bible. So because Milton is a Christian and believes in the Bible he, like I am sure a few other men felt that women were the more corrupt sex, based on this story.
