︎︎︎ This publication is a personal response to the emotional and poetic representation of characters Satan and Adam. Taking their timelines, the epic poem of Paradise Lost has been reversed, opening with an experimental book exploring the fall of Adam and Eve, before reading the revenge-driven master plan behind the fall in Satan’s book, who is commonly titled the tragic hero of Paradise Lost.

The Satan depicted by Milton in the first two books is a magnificent figure. We read about ‘His mighty stature’ (ii. 222), alongside how he is depicted as a great leader and an extremely courageous warriors; being the only one from a multitude of demons who dares enter the forbidden territory. In the first two books, he shows great eloquence as an orator and succeeds in rallying the fallen angels, binding them to a common cause.
︎︎︎ <SATAN> and <ADAM> books dissect monologues given from each character, exploring the composition of type to correlate with the emotional representation of the characters.

<ABSTRACT> book experiments with JavaScript generative code forms; displaying a visual representation to each characters feelings throughout their timeline: The Fall of Paradise, the rise of Satan; temptation; and innocence.

<INDEX> offers an overview of the publication, further documenting research of the English poet John Milton.
