Lecture on Paradise Lost

This document is in the public domain, released November 1988] A. Introduction In starting any discussion of Paradise Lost, we must first acknowledge that this is a massive and highly contested work.

He had visited Hrothgar’s Home before, knew the way— 400 But never, before nor after that night, Found Herot defended so firmly, his reception So harsh. He journeyed, forever joyless, Straight to the door, then snapped it open, Tore its iron fasteners with a touch, 405 And rushed angrily over the threshold. He strode quickly across the inlaid Floor, snarling and fierce: His eyes Gleamed in the darkness, burned with a gruesome Light. That mighty protector of men Meant to hold the monster till its life Leaped out, knowing the fiend was no use 475 To anyone in Denmark. 545 . . .

Unferth

All older and wiser heads warned you 245 Not to, but no one could check such pride. With Brecca at your side you swam along The sea-paths, your swift-moving hands pulling you Over the ocean’s face. Then winter Churned through the water, the waves ran you 250 As they willed, and you struggled seven long nights To survive. And at the end victory was his, Not yours.

Then Wulfgar went to the door and addressed The waiting seafarers with soldier’s words: “My lord, the great king of the Danes, commands me To tell you that he knows of your noble birth And that having come to him from over the open 130 Sea you have come bravely and are welcome.
