To say that "Milton could not conceive of an unfallen human
psychology, or represent it in language" seems to me to be 
EXACTLY wrong, and to thoroughly underestimate the 
astonishing achievement of the most original parts of PL 
(namely, the presentation of human life before the Fall).  
What a pity that someone devoted to Milton should think this.
