I wasn’t very fond of this week’s reading; not saying it was enjoyable I definitely think it was a easier read than most text we’ve had. This weeks reading focused heavily on religion. I think if i had to choose a favorite it would have to be Eve’s apology because it showed a different view of an individual’s relationship with religion and god.
I think the attitude towards religion in Eve’s apology in Defense of women was weird; it puts forward in my opinion as women are weak in a way. It’s as if its expected for women to be weaker than men and puts in questions why adam or men in this scenario also caved in and should of resisted temptation.
Milton justifies the ways of God in Book 1 by indicates that individuals may always sin, but i think what milton is trying to say is that the true sin is sinning without learning a lesson.
