Lecture 20 - Paradise Lost , Books XI-XII (cont.) << previous session | next session >> Overview: In this final lecture on Paradise Lost , Book Twelve's justification for the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the garden is examined alongside the Genesis account.

The poem's closing lines are closely read, with substantial attention paid to Milton's final, complicated take on the poem-long consideration of Providence and free will. Reading assignment: John Milton. Complete Poems and Major Prose.
