I'm not sure whether this particular question is directly covered there, but you might want to check out Laura Knopper's and Greg Semenza's edited collection on Milton in Popular Culture.

"Pandemonium" (1.756) and "all hell broke loose" (4.918) are perhaps the most famous of Milton's coinages in Paradise Lost, while "His Dark Materials" (Pullman),  "Darkness Visible" (Styron), "In Dubious Battle" (Steinbeck), and "Precious Bane" (Mary Webb) are book titles taken from the epic.  Is there a convenient list somewhere (or the memories of list members) that would provide other words, phrases, or titles taken from PL?  I am preparing a brief advertisement for a short course on PL; any help would be appreciated.
