Bill thanks for your discernment in the discovery and disclosure of the now obvious commentary of Spear's, Discordia's,  life on PL which I was prepared to disclaim and discard. I must admit your knowledge of Spears discography to be a bit disconcerting.

  I should have thought it perfectly obvious that the Spears canon is, in fact, a oblique but detailed commentary on Paradise Lost.

  We have Satan's despair at his fall ("Oops... I did it again"); detailed justification of Britney/God's power over the universe ("My Prerogative"); Adam's quest for knowledge in his conversation with Raphael ("Someday (I Will Understand)" and "I'm So Curious"); a portrait of Adam and Eve, pre-fall ("State of Grace"); the creation of Eve ("Piece of Me") and Eve's submission to Adam ("Born to Make You Happy").

  With regard to Carrol's comments, I think it'll be when Spears does finally move on to Rochester that we'll get the really groundbreaking work.
