|Title:||Milton's Poetic Technique: Sound and Sight Imagery and the Theme of Temptation in the Major Poems|
|Authors:||Hillyer, Frances Janet|
|Keywords:||English Language and Literature;English Language and Literature|
|Abstract:||<p>Milton viewed life as a series of trials and opportunities for the proving of the spirit. Temptation is thus a central theme in his major poems: Comus, Paradise Lost, Paradise Regained and Samson Agonistes. This essay attempts to examine the poetic methods used to both depict character and portray temptation in these poems. It is asserted that Milton establishes a characteristic system of sound and sight images to perform these vital functions.</p>|
