Dear Alexandra,

I agree that we need a little more information to answer your question fully.  One that might help since you mention that you are French is 1.260-270, which contains the section "Better to reign in Hell..." because I know that the fist Spanish translation of Paradise Lost which advertises itself as based on the French translation omits that blasphemous line and modifies the surrounding context.  

If you are just interested in contemporary Miltonists' favorite lines, one of my favorites is "Servant of God, well done."

> Interesting in what respect, Alexandra? It would be helpful if you identified the reason for your inquiry and the level of your studies. (Are you an undergraduate or graduate student, a professor, or an independent scholar?) Your question is a very general one, and since it is a matter of personal preference, it is not easy to answer. (Some of us might be tempted to respond, "All of them!")
