    To me, the most haunting thing from Paradise Lost that still disturbs me to this day is the imagery of Sin. Something I was hoping you’d bring up in your analysis of her character is that she is constantly giving birth to these canine monsters who, themselves, copulate with her to produce more and more of themselves in an eternally incestuous cycle. What this is meant to represent is that the mind often falls in love with its own creations, “ideas”, and unless these ideas are presented to the wider world for scrutiny and discourse, then the idea will fall in love with itself and often spawn even more ideas solely off from its own imagined merits, but with each subsequent new idea becoming even more flawed and degenerated than the last. It’s a disturbing allegory of how bad ideas that are never brought to the light of day will fester and multiply unto themselves until nothing else can be done about it. What starts as a thought of pure beauty can, over time, degenerate into an overflowing cesspool of madness if you aren’t careful.

      I also: at which time this powerful key
      Into my hands was given, with charge to keep
      These gates for ever shut, which none can pass
      Without my opening. Pensive here I sat
      Alone; but long I sat not, till my womb,
      Pregnant by thee, and now excessive grown,
      Prodigious motion felt and rueful throes.
      At last this odious offspring whom thou seest,
      Thine own begotten, breaking violent way,
      Tore through my entrails, that, with fear and pain
      Distorted, all my nether shape thus grew
      Transformed: but he my inbred enemy
      Forth issued, brandishing his fatal dart,
      Made to destroy. I fled, and cried out Death!
      Hell trembled at the hideous name, and sighed
      From all her caves, and back resounded Death!
      I fled; but he pursued (though more, it seems,
      Inflamed with lust than rage), and, swifter far,
      Me overtook, his mother, all dismayed,
      And, in embraces forcible and foul
      Engendering with me, of that rape begot
      These yelling monsters, that with ceaseless cry
      Surround me, as thou saw’st, hourly conceived
      And hourly born, with sorrow infinite
      To me; for, when they list, into the womb
      That bred them they return, and howl, and gnaw
      My bowels, their repast; then, bursting forth
      Afresh, with conscious terrors vex me round,
      That rest or intermission none I find.
      Before mine eyes in opposition sits
      Grim Death, my son and foe, who set them on,
      And me, his parent, would full soon devour
      For want of other prey, but that he knows
      His end with mine involved, and knows that I
      Should prove a bitter morsel, and his bane,
      Whenever that shall be: so Fate pronounced.

      @The Grim Critic wtf are you talking about

  3. Okay ImSorry says:

    Your description of Adam’s love for Eve and the beauty of her existence moved me too. Something about the idea of their love for eachother surviving the fall from grace reminds me of how powerful and amazing love is.

  4. King Tvlip says:

    you’re the only YouTuber to get me to cry with them when talking about biblical stories, its definitely not cringe because you are always authentic!

  5. Marcus Bell says:

    You’re completely right about people misunderstanding this book as just E-boy Satan, and I’m extremely happy you covered it. I bought it a few years ago and just couldn’t get into it sadly, so I watched some other YouTuber cover it and they painted the plot so terribly compared to you. It was such a basic run down and pretty much laid out what you said most people interpret the book. They just focus on the whole sympathy for the Devil aspect which isn’t there and don’t even mention the real meat of the discussions between Adam, Eve, and the Archangel Raphael, the fall of man with Adam’s pure undying devotion to Eve, and the intrigue Adam had. I found it so interesting that in the book Raphael said it’s okay to ask questions and be inquisitive. I went to a Catholic school from grades 1-11 and it always seemed like if you asked questions, you were questioning God’s plan and activity going against him, and it’s like no, just curious.
    Great video like all your others, but I think this one is just a bit better. Maybe it’s that personal touch you have with Christianity.

    I would listen to this man give a prayer and NOT get bored. This man is what a YouTuber story teller SHOULD be.

    • Momo Shikadora says:

      Agree, if he was a teacher I bet religion would be one of the most fondly remembered subjects in school. I sure know I would have loved it if it was taught like that.

  7. down right annoying says:

    knowing the context of the religious conflicts in the 1600s makes these works so interesting because you can see the distinct similarities between the story and what the author was going through in real life

  8. Caitlin Miller says:

    I’m not a Christian, and my family has a bad history with Christianity, but it is truly kinda sweet to see you so moved by this, it’s moving in and of itself. Excellent work, man.

      @beaniefaust Da Fuq???

    • beaniefaust says:

      @Sinsinawa honey being part of a white girl coven doesn’t make you a satanist 💀💀💀 you wouldn’t be preaching in a youtube comment section if you practiced all their genuine self-fulfillment/desire-centric values LOL

      not to be a paragraph preacher, but don’t immediately take the opposite side simply because you disagree with certain facets of an established religion. think for yourself. make your faith a genuine choice, not a reactionary one.

    • FolstrimHori says:

      @Matt Crump I like how your argument cuts out an individual’s free will as a source of blame, and instead sets it on a book which has nothing that argues for the sins that you are describing.
      What is it with people who hate on Christianity despite not actually knowing anything about it?

      Is it because if they try and attack Islam in the same way, there’s always the threat of a surprise beheading?

    • Ben Kish says:

      @Based God The beginning of Roman’s also says something about homosexuality being a sin, I don’t know what verse tho

    • Sinsinawa says:

      I’m a satanist and I can admit when something is written very well and moving

  9. Hysterically Accurate says:

    My God. Thinking about how pure Adam and Eve’s love was, and then hearing that Adam looked at Eve with lust for the first time after eating the fruit… I’m actually heartbroken.

    • Rose Q says:

      @Happy Mate This version is way spicier

    • Happy Mate says:

      In the original Jewish Mesopotamian text adam had a first wife named lilith who was created the same way adam was created from dust. She later became a evil spirit because she did not like adam being in charged. She came back and took the form of a serpant to get adam and his new wife eve to eat the apple.

    “Is the devil the good guy?” No, of course not. Let’s ignore his lies, let’s ignore his deception, let’s ignore how he deceived humanity in his bitterness and anger, and let’s focus on one thing: where did Satan’s actions lead him? He brought about misery for millions of angels, he condemned humanity to sin and death, and what did he gain? Hell, wherever he went. His pride brought him low, because that’s what sin does. Its a miserable pestilence that only leads to misery for those who hold onto it and those around them.
