Dear Salwa, I thank you.
I agree with your about the radical differences between Dante's and
Milton's Satans. Just:

>No explanation of what Lucifer did on earth and how he got in Hell

that's only partially true. Not so in Inferno, but Dante did it in his
Purgatorio and Paradiso, which unfortunately are often neglected. E.g.
the Purgatorio is Dante's "Paradise Lost" since it is set on the very
mountain of Eden.
