JOHN MILTON AND HIS COSMOGONY ON THE ORIGIN OF THE UNIVERSE
MetadataShow full item record
Heir to the poetic age, John Milton introduces us in Paradise Lost to the symbolic dichotomy between Light and Darkness. This same cosmogonic configuration is manifested as a metaphoric epiphany in the peotry of Charles Baudelarie and Achille Chavée. Enlightened by Milton’s Paradise Lost, as will be demonstrated in the present article, both present the myths of the origin of the world related to creation and chaos from the poetic opposition of Light and an Absence of Light.
