He shows how satan is not to blame. He writes the poem in such a way in order to make you love Satan. He is so good that you will alime.

 


  1. Paradise Lost is about Adam and Eve, how they came to be created and how they came to lose their place in the Garden of Eden, also called Paradise. It’s the same story you find in the first pages of Genesis, expanded by Milton into a very long, detailed, narrative poem. It also includes the story of the origin of Satan. Originally, he was called Lucifer, an angel in heaven who led his followers in a war against God, and was ultimately sent with them to hell. Thirst for revenge led him to cause man’s downfall by turning into a serpent and tempting Eve to eat the forbidden fruit.

The poem starts describing an evening in which as usual every minute is more quiet and darker, all animals are asleep except for the wakeful nightingale with is singing. The writer ;describes the evening as similar to paradise and the day as the time to work. That way paradise is achieved if you work hard when you are alive.

 

  1. 4. An analogy is a literary device that helps to establish a relationship based on similarities between two concepts or ideas. By using an analogy we can convey a new idea by using the blueprint of an old one as a basis for understanding. With a mental linkage between the two, one can create understanding regarding the new concept in a simple and succinct manner.

 

Epiphany is an “Aha!” moment. As a literary device, epiphany (pronounced ih-pif–uh-nee) is the moment when a character is suddenly struck with a life-changing realization which changes the rest of the story.

Often, an epiphany begins with a small, everyday occurrence or experience.

This story explains the changes of life and how we have to overcome them. At the beginning Bonnie Benjamin describes her life living in Petherton Road and the difficulties she and her family had in the house, in my opinion this part of the story shows us  readers how horrible the living conditions were but she still had a good time there. On the other hand when she moved to 211 Morris House she seemed optimistic and happy but although they led a life of luxury, it turned out  to be worse than the other one. In Morris House, kids where very unfriendly to her they made it quite plain. They wished they had never moved out of that crumbling old house away from what was familiar to them.

This story shows only one point of view, the negative, but in my perspective there are advantages too. Moving out can be something uncomfortable at first, being surrounded by people you barely know but it also can be seen as something positive because you could make new friends. Leaving your comfort zone can also be very beneficial, it can turn you into a more open minded person.
