Jim,

I believe your assertion that Milton intended to create a deep and
beautiful epic poem is completely complementary to the goals (creating
radical ambiguity) I outlined in my last post. As with Shakespeare, the
answer to many questions about Milton is "All of the above".

You are very apt to mention The Book of Job, which is another work which is
radically ambiguous and is also a beautiful poem.

Cheers, ARNIE
