[Milton-L] Eden as a dangerous place

Dear friends and scholars

writing my recent epigrams in fair copy, I 'came across' one whose basic
pun, once in a while, also works in English . . .  because it is in Latin.
Since the subject is Miltonian in the sense that the scene is set in Eden
(Purgatorio, canto 30, keeping William Blake's comments in mind), here it
is:


LILITH

And it thus came to pass that Dante

found himself, all atrembling,

before the

Beastrix.


Best!
