  It sliped my mind previously, but it is sure worth noting: the best tangible connection one can make between Milton and Lilith is, I think, via Edward Le Comte. In his novel I,Eve Lilith it present, to say the least ;) A great read, by the way, especially for Miltonists. I discovered it while doing my research on Lilith in Milton, which, since, I have abandoned.

  As for male sin representaions, one does not have to go as far as Italy Peacham's Icon Peccati (emblem 146) depicts a young boy with snakes around his waist, one eating its way into his heart - although this particular emblem was indeed influenced by Cesare Ripa's Iconologia:

  Technically speaking, you are right. And I had the same passage in mind. But as I read somewhere (perhaps here on this list) that Milton characterized Sin as female as opposed to a male one in the original (Italian?) sources, the Lilith theory became all the more tempting.

  As for Mr. Blair's "Did Milton ever use the word [hexameral]?," the Miltonists should answer the question.

  Satan and Sin beget Death. Death and Sin beget hell-hounds. I don't recall Sin ever begetting any 'devils'. Are you thinking of a passage in particular, Qadir?
