Females For The Pursuit of Knowledge
Click Here to view my essay on Eve as a heroic female figure in Milton's Paradise Lost. She is a character who embodies his personal championing theme of attaining knowledge and is one who is strongly considered by society to be submissive and susceptible, representative of women's oppression and deference to men over the course of human history. Yet, through my essay, I claim that Eve represents the ultimate goal of humans, especially Milton, of intellectual progression and growth.
