Lecture 20 - Paradise Lost, Books XI-XII (cont.)

Lecture 20 - Paradise Lost, Books XI-XII (cont.)

This video was recorded at ENGL 220 - Milton. In this final lecture on Paradise Lost, Book Twelve's justification for the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the garden is examined alongside the Genesis account. The nature of Milton's God, whether literal or liberal, is examined at length. The poem's closing lines are closely read, with substantial attention paid to Milton's final, complicated take on the poem-long consideration of Providence and free will.
