CHAPTER VIII
PURITANS AND CAVALIERS II

And, like a lobster boiled, the morn
From black to red began to turn.

Great conquerors greater glory gain
By foes in triumph led than slain.

Is of his own opinion still.

Butler is said to have expected a reward from the King and to have been disappointed. This was quite in the style of Charles II, whose gratitude was reserved for the favours which he hoped to receive.
Milton's later years. The only gratitude that can be felt toward Charles himself is for his negative goodness in not persecuting to the death John Milton, a man who had been so prominent during the Commonwealth and who had written the Defence of the English People. The poet was left to spend his later years in peace ; and then it was that his mind turned toward a plan of his youth that had long been laid aside for the time of quiet that he hoped would come. He wished to write some long poem on a subject that was worthy of his ability. Just what that subject should be was not easy to decide. He thought of taking King Arthur for a hero and writing a British epic ; but his plan broadened until he determined to write

Of man's first disobedience, and the fruit
Of that forbidden tree, whose mortal taste
Brought death into the world, and all our woe,
With loss of Eden, till one greater Man
Restore us, and regain the blissful seat.

These are the first lines of Paradise Lost. The poem is based upon Rev. xii. 7-9, the third chapter of Genesis, and other passages in the Bible. Satan rebels against God and with his angels is cast out of heaven into the flames of hell. While
