Paradise Lost – Picture Challenge

The Challenge

“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven..”
— John Milton (Paradise Lost)

“Better to reign in Hell, than to serve in Heaven.”
— John Milton (Paradise Lost)

“Farewell Hope, and with Hope farewell Fear”
— John Milton

“Awake, arise or be for ever fall’n.”
— John Milton (Paradise Lost)

“Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties.”
— John Milton

“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,/Sing heavenly muse”
— John Milton (Paradise Lost)

Your interpretations of this wide subject can be religious, personal, professional or political – but they MUST have a feminist message with them.
