Colloquy Undergraduate Research Journal
Flowers and gardening have been part of human life since God placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. In Milton’s epic Paradise Lost, flowers and the act of gardening enhance the meaning of the poem and give insight into life before and after sin corrupted God’s creation. Milton’s use of plant and floral imagery highlights the changes and continuities between unfallen and fallen life in Paradise Lost.
