Character sketch of Satan ?
or
Hero of paradise lost book - I ?

Answer :

Chronologically speaking, the hero is a paragon (model) of virtues like nobility, courage, generosity, kind and a good hearted person. As the Iliad exists for Achilles, the Odyssey for Odysseus like wise John Milton’s Paradise lost book – I exists for one and only one Satan. It is however surprising that the character of Satan has been a subject of sharp controversy among critics. In the words of Robert Burns;

“Give me a spirit like my favorite hero : Milton’s Satan.”

Satan possessed a towering personality like Gulliver with gigantic structure. He is compared with legendary Titans;

“Titanium or Earthborn, that warr’d on Jove,

Briorior or Typhon, whom the Den

By ancient Tarsus held or seabeast leviathan.”

The formost quality of his character is great courage and indomitable will. Even after loosing the first battle he declares;

“What thou the field be lost ?

All is not lost the unconquerable will

And study revenge, immortal hate.

And courage never to submit of field.”

He hates weakness saying that to be weak is miserable by his strength;

“Can make a Heaven of Hell, A Hell of Heaven.”

Even he finds an advantage in his defeat;

“Better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven.”

Satan also possesses qualifies of leadership, tact, presence of mind, wisdom and insight. It is because of these qualities that he succeed in injecting a new life to his fallen comrades. He is a good orator, as he declares;

“Awake, Arise or be forever fallen!”

Satan has unbending pride and thorough hatred towards Almighty. In his first speech to Beelzebub his pride is seen. He doubts whether Beelzebub is same that he had close association before. This behavior of Satan reflects his proudness.

However Satan is equally bad, a villain. His character gradually degenerates, as he suffers from detest, crafty and cunning nature, jealously and meanness. Infact, all his virtues turn to vices when he crossed the limit. His ambition, envy, hate and anger further adds fuel to fire. There is no doubt that Satan is a villain as he addressed as –

“Arch fiend”, “Arch enemy”, The Adversary of God and Man, The Author of an Ill, The Spirit Malign and so on.

Some critics like William Blake and Mark Pattison are in the view that - Milton is Satan and Satan is Milton. Pattison remarks;

“Milton projects himself his feelings, his knowledge and inspiration into the character of his epic.”

Satan is a tragic character as Tillyard in his book Studies in Milton, Milton compares Satan to Macbeth i.e. one of the Shakespearian tragic hero. Like Macbeth Satan also have excessive ambition and therefore Satan like Macbeth wants to get the ultimate throne. But the point which is noted here is that Satan is avaster and classic figure than Macbeth. He possesses a towering personality with gigantic size.

On the whole with all his demerits he remains the grandeur figure not only in English but in world literature. It is because of his heroic qualities. He deserves to be called as the hero of paradise lost book-I. In these reference William Hazlidd;

“Satan in undoubtable hero of this epic infact the most heroic subject that had ever chosen by Milton.”

Unit –II

On the sublime “Sources of Sublimity.” By Longinus.

Answer :

The most important legacy of the Graceo Roman period to the literary criticism is undoubtedly the fragmentary treaties entitled On The Sublime. This treatise bears on its title page the name of Longinus. On the sublime is a Greek document in epistolary form addressed to a person named Postumius Terentianus. This treatise contains the sources of sublimity.

The word sublime means ‘elevation’, sublimity is a certain distinction and excellence in composition. The true sublime can be best explained by distinguishing it from it false variety. False sublimity is based on ‘timidity’ which means bombast of language. On the contrary, true sublime pleases all and pleases always. It expresses the thoughts of universal validity.

There are five principal sources of the sublimity -

Grandeur of Thought : The first and the foremost source of sublimity is Grandeur of thought. Sublimity is the echo of a great soul. It is, in truth, an endowment rather than an acquirement we should nurture our souls on sublime thought. In this reference, W. R. Opines;

“Great accents we expect to fall from the lips of those whose thoughts are deep and grave.”

Therefore, one must feed his soul on the works of the great masters like Homer. This reflects the classicism of Longinus. However, Longinus does not say to imitate as it is but that - Men catch fire from the spirit of others.

Then comes the suitable treatment of the material. Details should be chosen as to form an organic whole i.e. Amplification. Amplification means accumulation of all the details of a given subject. But Amplification is a mere body of which sublimity is the soul. In other words, sublimity is the elevation while Amplification is the extension.

Vehement Passion - The second source of sublimity is vehement and inspired passion. Longinus asserts that nothing can be above genuine emotion. However this topic has not been explained in detail as we know that On The Sublime is a fragmentary treatise.

The Use Of Figures - Figures of speech should not be used mechanically, rather they must be rooted in genuine emotion. If they are used naturally, they impart elevation to style. Longinus considered the following figures of speech as very important. These are ‘Asyndeton’ i.e. omission of conjunction, ‘Hypervaton’ i.e. repetition of words and ‘Apostrophe’ i.e. address to abstract.

Diction - This source includes choice and arrangement of words. In other words by ‘diction’ Longinus means ‘Verbal Music’ Longinus considers ‘Metaphor’ as the queen of figures.

Dignified Composition - Then the proceeds to considers the fifth source of the sublime i.e. dignified and noble composition. By composition, he simply means a verbal order i.e. Rhythm.

So it is crystal clean that, out of these sources, the first two sources (Grandeur of thought, Vehement Passion) are innate while the remaining – (Use of Figures, Diction, Dignified Composition) are product of art. Thus, Nature and Art both contribute to the sublimity of style. To conclude in the views of Wimsatt Brooks;

“In many events Longinus must be saluted as a lover of great literature”

English Literature

English literature is hundreds of years old and continues to be one of the most popular courses of study in High Schools and Universities around the world. Learn about what defines English literature and a few of its greatest writers. It is the study of literature written in the English language. The writers do not necessarily have to be from England but can be from all over the world. It includes some of history's most famous writers: James Joyce (Ireland), William Shakespeare (England), Mark Twain (United States), Arthur Conan Doyle (Scotland), Dylan Thomas (Wales), and Vladimir Nabokov (Russia), just to name a few. English literature dates back more than five centuries. It represents writers not only from different parts of the world and time periods, but it covers every major genre and style of writing as well.

The English language has developed over the course of more than 1,400 years. The earliest forms of English, a set of Anglo-Frisian dialects brought to Great Britain by Anglo-Saxon settlers in the fifth century, are called Old English. Beowulf is the most famous work in Old English, and has achieved national epic status in England, despite being set in Scandinavia. However, following the Norman conquest of England in 1066, the written form of the Anglo-Saxon language became less common. Under the influence of the new aristocracy, French became the standard language of courts, parliament, and polite society. The English spoken after the Normans came is known as Middle English. This form of English lasted until the 1470s, when the Chancery Standard (late Middle English), a London-based form of English, became widespread. Geoffrey Chaucer (1343 – 1400), author of The Canterbury Tales was a significant figure in the development of the legitimacy of vernacular Middle English at a time when the dominant literary languages in England were still French and Latin. The invention of the printing press by Johannes Gutenberg in 1439 also helped to standardize the language, as did the King James Bible (1611) and the Great Vowel Shift.

Poet and playwright William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616) is widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and one of the world's greatest dramatists. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. In the nineteenth century Sir Walter Scott's historical romances inspired a generation of painters, composers, and writers throughout Europe. The English language spread throughout the world with the development of the British Empire between the late 16th and early 18th centuries. At its height, it was the largest empire in history. By 1913, the British Empire held sway over 412 million people, 23% of the world population at the time, During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries these colonies and the USA started to produce their own significant literary traditions in English. And in the last hundred plus years numerous writers from Great Britain, the island of Ireland, the USA, and members of other former British colonies have received the Nobel Prize for works in the English language.
