Satan main flaw
adam main flaw
love for eve-but him eating the apple makes him fall out of 'true love' with her
satan quote which shows his jealousy of man and the theme this shows
" Provokes my envy, this new favourite
Of Heav’n" (hierarchy and order)
satan quote which shows what he will do to eve and adam
"Spite then with spite is best repaid"
most famous line in the poem about eve eating the apple
"...she plucked, she ate" (monosyllabic- shows the simplicity of the action)
adam quote which shows the love adam has for eve
"to lose thee were to lose myself"
Satan quote where he is convincing eve to eat the fruit- about ambition- links well to DoM
"And life more perfect have attained than Fate
Meant me, by vent’ring higher than my lot."
adam quote about eve's eating the fruit allowing them to see true evil in the world- what does the quotation show
"Both good and evil, good lost, and evil got"-- by eve's ambition to have higher status they are both now able to fully see the evil in the world- not naïve anymore
