Exile from Home: Paradise Lost, Frankenstein, and Perelandra


Angelina Stanford


In Paradise Lost, Milton set the literary standard—and in some significant ways the theological standard as well—for our understanding of sin, rebellion, the Fall, and redemption.  Mary Shelley and CS Lewis were both profoundly fascinated by and influenced by Paradise Lost and wrote novels that retold, responded to, and critiqued Milton’s vision and challenges us to reexamine what we think we know about the Fall.
