In "Acerca de "El Paraiso Perdido" de John Milton | Joan Curbet," Joan Curbet discusses the poem's importance in terms of its philosophical and poetic content. She discusses how Milton demolishes the idea of predestination, which is a central tenet of Calvinism.

  • 00:00:00 John Milton's "Paradise Lost" is a grand epic poem that deals with the loss of paradise, and the various ways people try to recover it. The poem is divided into 12 books, and each book focuses on a different topic, such as war in the heavens, the cataclysmic war that followed, and the temptation in Eden. Milton uses this structure to introduce the characters and the action of the poem to the reader from the very beginning. However, the poem does not offer easy answers to the question of whether it is worth making a revolution and losing paradise. That is ultimately up to the reader to decide.
  • 00:05:00 In the fifth book, which will recap what happened previously, we reach the situation before the creation of the universe. The angels rebel, there is a war in heaven, and humans are created. In the process of creation, and the arrival of man and woman to the Garden of Eden, which is based on biblical principles, the lost paradise would be essentially comprised of the four first chapters of the hydrology book, the sixth clear, and the book of Revelation, in which is described the war of the heavens. However, all of this would be interpreted and reinterpreted throughout the entirety of the Bible, with fundamental actions remaining the same. Throughout the course of the work, everything in the Bible would be reinterpreted, but not rewritten. I want to make this distinction because I notice that I always write, inserting elements from biblical texts into action-based texts, and replacing them in action. Basic actions that we are accustomed to, figures that are outlined in texts become complex and sophisticated characters with contradictory profiles, and always present when developments are known. The essential elements of biblical texts are always there, before entering into action. Before acting, it is necessary to take into account also the vision of the universe presented by Milton, which is very interesting in the modern
  • 00:10:00 John Milton's "Paradise Lost" discusses the concept of Geocentrism. According to this theory, the Earth is the center of the universe and everything revolves around it. However, in the 21st century, this idea is starting to change, and some people are beginning to believe that the universe has no limits. In terms of the poem itself, Milton argues that the Divine action is not limited by space or time. Therefore, the Earth is not the only center of importance; the universe itself can be seen as having multiple centers of power.
  • 00:15:00 In John Milton's "Paradise Lost," humans are divided into four elements--earth, air, fire, and water--according to their proportions in nature. However, there is a fifth element, ether, which alchemists called the quintessence because it is the purest and most subtle of all substances. It binds together the elements and maintains the universe. Angels are composed of ether, and humans are made of material ether that is at the same time atómica and atemporal. Human bodies can die, but angel bodies are indestructible. Milton discusses the topic of morality in his poem, focusing on the dichotomy of free will and moral responsibility. He introduces the topic with a quotation from Jean-Paul Sartre, who posits that human beings are "seers" because they are able to use language.

  • 00:25:00 In "Acerca de "El Paraiso Perdido" de John Milton | Joan Curbet," Christ is described as the best possible man, and the redeemer certainly is. However, Christ is not God. He must be a man in order to make sense, and Box and he would lack purpose without him. We sing to Celeste, the muse of Russia, and ask her to help us. She responds, "Yes, let us go to Celeste." She is the uranian goddess of the girl who astrologically studies truth, knowledge of the cosmos. But then she calls on another power, and we don't have the means to hear her. You in particular, spirit, are the best suited to do this. You know at the very first moment, spreading your wings like a dove, that covers the vast abyss and makes it fertile. This moment of creation is inspired by a spiritual force, which we call God in a Catholic world. It's not God Himself, or His father, because as I say, God exists outside of history. But the spirit is the force that animates creation, and that's what Newton claims, too- that's why he invokes it in his Principia. Focusing on
  • 00:30:00 The video discusses the character of Satan in John Milton's poem "El Paraiso Perdido." It discusses how Satan is a character who is constantly in rebellion against God and man, and that he is a figure who is evolving and changing over time. It also discusses how Satan is a political figure, and how the ancient revolutionaries, such as the Roman republicans, were inevitably going to feel a kinship with him.
  • 00:35:00 In "El Paraiso Perdido", John Milton deals with the concept of proximity and how it applies to good texts like this one. Neither the text nor the opposition is only good for 517 people, or just for the Iranian opposition. Absolute monarchy can be applied to any time or movement of resistance. Truthfully, fragments like this can be seen as impugning the temporal authority of iranian dictatorships. However, the resistance against illegitimate authorities is much more complex than this. It is not just a matter of being "the things are more complex for me" - there are deeper layers to be explored. When looking at the characters in their entirety, we see that they are constantly in motion and constantly changing. Satan is introduced at the beginning of book 4, just as he is about to begin his task of temptation of humans on earth. We see him at his entrance into the land, and then in book 4 he is just about to start his work of temptation of the angels. He is undergoing a change, and he is questioning himself deeply. He is proud of his ambition, but he realizes that this is the worst thing that has ever happened to him. He does not say to God, "What is this payment you are asking for?
  • 00:40:00 In "El Paraiso Perdido," John Milton presents a complex, emotionally charged story about the awakening of Adam. Throughout the poem, he employs various images and themes to explore the human experience, including sexuality, identity, and language. Adam is introduced in the poem as a being who is "just/born," and who is in the process of becoming conscious. As he speaks for the first time, Adam ponders the purpose of language, and asks himself questions about his surroundings that are still unanswered. Milton uses these opening scenes to explore the protagonist's thoughts and emotions, and to introduce the major themes of the poem. Adam gradually comes to understand his own existence, and his relationship to the world around him. He is a thinker, and his first act as a conscious being is to question the purpose of language. Milton concludes the poem with a discussion of the importance of thought and contemplation in the human experience.
  • 00:45:00 In "El Paraiso Perdido", John Milton imagines a Garden of Eden where humans are free to be themselves and have the same thoughts and processes as animals. Men and women are essentially the same, and without language, they would not be moral beings. Even though Milton was a staunch Protestant, he created a character of Eve who is completely in her own right and surpasses Shakespeare's male characters. Newton's portrayal of Eve as a science-driven figure is also admirable. This fresh decision to go beyond retelling the biblical story is a Neoplatonic trend that goes beyond the physical realm to obtain something more. In "9," Milton's epic poem about the fall, Eve experiences her moment of solitude andoneliness necessary to convince herself of the importance of the Garden.
  • 00:50:00 In 17th century Spain, Joan Curbet discusses the power of both biblical and cultural forces in regards to Paradise Lost. Curbet argues that both science and religion forbid us from enjoying Paradise Lost too much, as it could lead us down a dangerous path. He believes that knowledge of good and evil is more attractive when it is forbidden, as it makes us more inquisitive. Curbet also discusses how, in his revolutionary project, he lost Paradise in the process. However, he argues that, in the end, what is gained is something far greater, namely the ability to think for ourselves and be moral.
