[Milton-L] death in Eden.

I have always found it interesting, too, that both Eve and Sin refer to Adam
and Satan as their "Authors" (creators). Sin becomes a parody of the Wisdom
figure of the apocrypha, and of Zeus's/Jove's wisdom (Athena) in the same
light.

Perhaps that is why Voltaire was so revolted by Milton's unholy triumvirate.

Best,

Carol Barton
