John Milton’s Paradise Lost is an epic seen as one of the greatest tales of time. Written in blank verse, iambic pentameter, Milton himself was blind when writing the story, yet manage to know exactly where he was while having his daughters write down what he was speaking. The text is heavily discussed, for many reason, but mostly on the topic of who the hero is. Lots of evidence suggests that Milton has named Satan the hero, as he fits the traits of an epic hero.

Professor Stephen M. Fallon from the University of Notre Dame makes an interesting point on our free will. “We carry with us from God into the world a disposition to good, a free disposition confirmed by acts of the will adhering to the eternal moral law”. It’s believed that we...
