Hesiod's Theogony implies the existence of Chaos as a character in a drama
rather than just a mass of disorganized matter that is later organized, but,
as in Milton, it seems to be spoken of as a place as well.  For that matter,
the earth comes into existence alongside of Chaos rather than out of it.
