Paradise Notes 2
Perhaps the best claim towards this statement that Satin is the hero of Paradise Lost can be best found in the above question. If one is to contend that Adam and Eve (as the metaphorical parents of mankind)’s fall from grace is a good thing, then who is to blame (or praise) other then the snake Satin himself. He enables an opportunity to lead a purposeful and fulfilling life of forgiveness and redemption with his temptation. Ironically failing on all fronts at disrupting God’s good creation.
