Good vs Evil Miltons Paradise Lost John Milton divided the characters in his epic poem Paradise Lost into two sides one side under God representing good and the other side under Satan representing evil and sin Milton first introduced the reader to the character Satan the representative of all evil and his allegiance of fallen angels that aided in his revolt against God Milton 35 Only later did Milton introduce the reader to all powerful God leader and creator of all mankind John This introduction of Satan first led the reader to believe acts of sin were good just like Eve felt in the Garden of Eden when she was enticed by Satan to eat the fruit off of the Tree of Knowledge Milton 255 The later introduction of The Almighty had the readers change their feelings towards sin as the ways of God were introduced to them and these ways were shown to be the way to feel and believe This levy of good vs evil carried on throughout the poem with the interaction of Satan and his fallen angels with God and his son in Heaven The common representation of sin and evil came from the lead character in the battle against God Satan His name means enemy of God He was a former high angel from Heaven named Lucifer meaning light bearer John Satan became jealous in Heaven of Gods son and formed an allegiance of angels to battle against God only for God to cast them out of Heaven into Hell Milton 35 This did not bother Satan at first since he became the leader in Hell rather than a servant in Heaven Satan believed that it was Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven I-l 263 Much of Satans reliance on getting things accomplished came from his ability to lie and deceive He lied to the fallen angels about the Son and his vice-regency in Heaven
