|AUTHOR:||John Milton (16081674)|
|QUOTATION:||The other shape,|
If shape it might be calld that shape had none
Distinguishable in member, joint, or limb;
Or substance might be calld that shadow seemd,
For each seemd either,black it stood as night,
Fierce as ten furies, terrible as hell,
And shook a dreadful dart; what seemd his head
The likeness of a kingly crown had on.
Satan was now at hand.
