Terms in this set (11)
';' after evil- emphasises strong language
'knowledge, knowledge' ANADIPLOSIS like Satan
dichotomy of good/evil
'...naming thee the tree
Of knowledge, knowledge both of good and evil;'
'her rash hand' syntax- Eve appears not in control? Hand, not her? hand, subject or object?
'in evil hour' REPEATED LATER BY ADAM
'So saying, her rash hand in evil hour
... she plucked, she ate:
Earth felt the wound,'
NATURAL IMAGERY seen again later after Adam eats apple and after 'play' (sex)
'Earth felt the wound,'
wanting to be as a god- striving to rise up in hierarchy
ADAM MIRRORS THIS DESIRE LATER
'...nor was godhead from her thought'
'sovereign' copying Satan's earlier flattery
'O sovereign, virtuous, precious of all trees
debating whether or not to tell Adam of fruit
'But keep the odds of knowledge in my power
'more equal' PIG DOCTRINE IN ANIMAL FARM 'ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS'
frequent commas- broken thought? excited?
'inferior who is free?' satanic doctrine
STRIVING to be equal/better in hierarchy (Gertrude Stein 'patriarchal society'
'And render me more equal, and perhaps,
A thing not undesirable, sometime
Superior, for inferior who is free?'
jealousy - 7 deadly sins
'...I shall be no more,
And Adam wedded to another Eve.'
Adam earlier said when persuading Eve to stay 'who guards her, or with the worst endures'
Is Eve truly being malicious? a 'murderer' (C.S. Lewis)
'... Confirmed then I resolve,
Adam shall share with me in bliss or woe'
'choicest' flowers are beautiful
Of choicest flowers a garland to adorn
her formerly 'rash' hand
'fairest' repetition, Satan uses fairest/fair to describe fruit- similar to Eve's 'innoence'
SIBILANCE of apple- link to sin/serpent/satan
IRONY OF AMBROSIAL- ambrosia is food of the angel, literally being immortal, ironic that this fruit that smells of ambrosia actually makes them mortal
ALSO plays on Adam and Eve's desire to be 'godhead'/'or angels demi-gods'
'...in her hand
A bough of fairest fruit...
New gathered, and ambrosial smell diffused.'
