At the start of Book II, Satan sits on his throne like a Middle Eastern potentate and addresses the assembled devils as to the course of action they should follow. Each speaker offers a different attitude concerning a solution for their Hellish predicament: Moloch proposes open warfare on Heaven; Belial proposes that they do nothing; Mammon argues that Hell may not be so bad, that it can be livable, even comfortable, if all the devils will work to improve it; and Beelzebub, Satan's mouthpiece, argues that the only way to secure revenge on Heaven is to corrupt God's newest creation: Man.

Milton asserts that this original sin brought death to human beings for the first time, causing us to lose our home in paradise until Jesus comes to restore humankind to its former position of purity. He says that his poem, like his muse, will fly above those of the Classical poets and accomplish things never attempted before, because his source of inspiration is greater than theirs. Then he invokes the Holy Spirit, asking it to fill him with knowledge of the beginning of the world, because the Holy Spirit was the active force in creating the universe. The beginning of Paradise Lost is similar in gravity and seriousness to the book from which Milton takes much of his story: the Book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible. In these two sentences, Milton invokes his muse, which is actually the Holy Spirit rather than one of the nine muses. By invoking a muse, but differentiating it from traditional muses, Milton manages to tell us quite a lot about how he sees his project.
Paradise Lost is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English poet John Milton — The first version, published in , consists of ten books with over ten thousand lines of verse. A second edition followed in , arranged into twelve books in the manner of Virgil 's Aeneid with minor revisions throughout. The biographer John Aubrey —97 tells us that the poem was begun in about and finished in about However, parts were almost certainly written earlier, and its roots lie in Milton's earliest youth. Leonard also notes that Milton "did not at first plan to write a biblical epic. Having gone blind in , Milton wrote Paradise Lost entirely through dictation with the help of amanuenses and friends.
The Consultation begun, Satan debates whether another Battel be to be hazarded for the recovery of Heaven: some advise it, others dissuade: A third proposal is prefer'd , mention'd before by Satan , to search the truth of that Prophesie or Tradition in Heaven concerning another world, and another kind of creature equal or not much inferiour to themselves, about this time to be created: Thir doubt who shall be sent on this difficult search: Satan thir chief undertakes alone the voyage, is honourd and applauded. The Councel thus ended, the rest betake them several wayes and to several imployments , as thir inclinations lead them, to entertain the time till Satan return. He passes on his journey to Hell Gates, finds them shut, and who sat there to guard them, by whom at length they are op'nd , and discover to him the great Gulf between Hell and Heaven; with what difficulty he passes through, directed by Chaos, the Power of that place, to the sight of this new World which he sought. HIgh on a Throne of Royal State , which far Outshon the wealth of Ormus and of Ind, Or where the gorgeous East with richest hand Showrs on her Kings Barbaric Pearl and Gold, Satan exalted sat, by merit rais'd [ 5 ] To that bad eminence; and from despair Thus high uplifted beyond hope, aspires Beyond thus high, insatiate to pursue Vain Warr with Heav'n , and by success untaught His proud imaginations thus displaid. Powers and Dominions , Deities of Heav'n , For since no deep within her gulf can hold Immortal vigor , though opprest and fall'n , I give not Heav'n for lost. From this descent Celestial vertues rising, will appear [ 15 ] More glorious and more dread then from no fall, And trust themselves to fear no second fate: Mee though just right, and the fixt Laws of Heav'n Did first create your Leader, next free choice, With what besides, in Counsel or in Fight, [ 20 ] Hath bin achievd of merit, yet this loss Thus farr at least recover'd , hath much more Establisht in a safe unenvied Throne Yielded with full consent. The happier state In Heav'n , which follows dignity, might draw [ 25 ] Envy from each inferior; but who here Will envy whom the highest place exposes Formost to stand against the Thunderers aim Your bulwark, and condemns to greatest share Of endless pain?

In the first book: To these Satan directs his speech, comforts them with hopes yet of regaining Heaven, but tells them lastly of a new world and new kind of creature to be created, according to an ancient prophecy or report in Heaven; for that Angels were long before this visible creation, was the opinion of many ancient Fathers.

He knows he is not going to win but because he does not have anything left to loose, he is willing to try. My interpretation of this passage is that because Satan can only do things that God allows to be done, he is taking advantage of the opportunity and causing as much damage to be done to God's side as he can manage. As such Satan asserts he has earned the right to rule by the will of those around him, unlike God who has a position that is easily envied as it was not given to him, he simply claims it.
Satan opens the debate in Pandemonium by claiming that Heaven is not yet lost, and that the fallen angels or devils might rise up stronger in another battle if they work together. He opens the floor, and the pro-war devil Moloch speaks first. Moloch was one of the fiercest fighters in the war in Heaven, and he anxiously pleads for another open war, this time armed with the weapons of Hell.

Люди на подиуме с нетерпением ждали, когда на экране появится их бывший сослуживец Энсей Танкадо. Ускоренное проигрывание видеозаписи придавало изображению некоторую комичность. Вот Танкадо вышел на открытое место и залюбовался открывшимся перед ним зрелищем. Он козырьком поднес руку к глазам и стал разглядывать шпили над внушительным фасадом. - Смотрите внимательно, - предупредил Смит. - Халохот - профессионал.
Она совершила судорожный рывок влево и вроде бы закружилась в воздухе, а затем снова прильнула к центру лестницы. Халохот сделал стремительный прыжок. Вот. На ступенях прямо перед Халохотом сверкнул какой-то металлический предмет. Он вылетел из-за поворота на уровне лодыжек подобно рапире фехтовальщика. Халохот попробовал отклониться влево, но не успел и со всей силы ударился об него голенью.
Простота. Губительная простота. Он делает то, на что запрограммирован, а потом исчезает. Фонтейн сурово смотрел на Джаббу: - И на что же запрограммирован этот червяк. - Понятия не имею, - сказал Джабба.
