I agree. The narrative is quite complex and nuanced in this regard, in my view.

But I don't think it's at all clear that the narrative actually does that ("stresses the intellectual sin of desiring knowledge that goes beyond the bounds that God sets in place") -- interesting and important though the question is. JD Fleming

Hi Lily, Be sure to check out Victoria Kahn, "Allegory and the Sublime in Paradise Lost" here's a link found online: http://www.hu.mtu.edu/~rlstrick/rsvtxt/kahn.pdf

Hello, everybody,
 
I'm a graduate student who's writing a research paper on Milton's use of allegories within
Paradise Lost.  If allegories are a mediator between the human mind and concepts that are considered to be beyond human understandings, I'm trying to find out what role the allegorical characters Sin and Death play in a narrative that stresses the
 intellectual sin of desiring knowledge that goes beyond the bounds that God sets in place.  If anyone can suggest some sources that will help in my research, I would be really appreciative.
 
Thank you,
 
Lilly
