So there are these degrees, from love to lust: Heaven starts it, knowing the possible consequences, which are therefore not wholly unintended. For example, Adam is, understandably, a confused Neoplatonist: The fall actually produces a new and higher love from God to Man.

Once again, the question is whether their novel unbowered daytime sex with its postcoital recriminations, whether love turned into lust, is the sin or its consequence? We learn that more such grow in Heaven, that after the fatal fall, man has to be moved from the proximity of the one in Paradise, for it can cure mortality To take a coolly secular view, the ruler of this polity is either deliberately disruptive or disregards some prime rules of management: What a complexity of divine design!Milton oversaw the printing of a second edition of Paradise Lost inwhich included an explanation of "why the poem rhymes not," clarifying his use of blank verse, along with introductory notes by Marvell.
