Sympathy For The Devil, Elizabeth Wickham Stephens Dec 1988

Sympathy For The Devil, Elizabeth Wickham Stephens

Theses, Dissertations & Honors Papers

When one first mentions John Milton's Paradise Lost, one is reminded of the fall of Adam and Eve. Yet for the reader who encounters this epic poem for the first time, a surprise is waiting.

Through his verse, Milton explores the thoughts and motives of Satan, leaving the reader with an astonishing reaction: Satan is a pitiable character. From the war in heaven, to the regions of hell, to the Garden of Eden, Milton closely follows this downfallen character. He first ...

George Eliot Birthday Luncheon: The Toast To The Immortal Memory, Margaret Wolfit Nov 1988

George Eliot Birthday Luncheon: The Toast To The Immortal Memory, Margaret Wolfit

The George Eliot Review

In May 1869 George Eliot received what she described as "a really noble letter from the American writer Harriet Beecher Stowe full of admiration of Silas Marner The Mill on the Floss and Adam Bede" and although they never met, there seems to have been some deep affinity of feeling between these two eminent women that drew them closely together in spite of diversity of intellectual tastes.

In reply to that first letter George Eliot wrote; - "Letters are necessarily narrow and fragmentary, and when one writes on wide subjects, are likely to create more misunderstanding than illumination. But I have ...

Mythlore: A Journal of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams, and Mythopoeic Literature
