Chaos and Hell Allusions
In Paradise Lost
The chaos that ensues in Paradise Lost started far before the part when Satan and his followers were chained to the fiery lake. It started in heaven when Lucifer and his army of angels began to disband from God and attempt to become equals with him. This resulted in further chaos when Lucifer and his army were damned to hell by God. In a way this was the beginning of chaos in the world as we know it today. Without the episode Lucifer created, the world would live in peace and harmony, because it is Satan who led Eve into temptation to eat the forbidden fruit, which was the origination of earthly sin.
