In a sense, Book VII is Milton's improved scientific and Christian account of the story of creation. Of course, all of these changes are presented by Raphael, so it is more precise to call this version of creation Raphael's. Book 3 of Paradise Lost by John Milton highlights the characters of both God and Satan where God sees the impending Man’s Fall and Satan’s rebellious war while sitting upon His throne and Satan plan to tempt and corrupt God’s first creation in the Heaven.

the creation of the world Milton's account of Creation in Book VII of Paradise Lost follows the Bible quite closely, sometimes using direct quotes.

In one major variation, however, Milton's Creator rides out into chaos to begin his work in a chariot "on the wings of cherubim uplifted, in paternal glory" while "all his train followed in bright procession.". Extraordinarily, the 12 books of Paradise Lost expand on just a few verses of the Old Testament: first, those explaining God’s formation of man, his creation of the garden in which stood the forbidden ‘tree of knowledge of good and evil’ and his birthing of woman from man’s rib, then those dealing with the ‘subtil’ serpent’s temptation of Eve.

Around these passages Milton develops the drama of discord between.

Summary. After Raphael finishes the story of creation, Adam asks him about the motions of the stars, sun, and planets. Eve decides to leave them alone to converse, not because she is bored or unable to grasp the discussion, but because she prefers to hear about the conversation afterward from Adam.

Paradise Lost insists that Adam and Eve had free will and were protected by adequate knowledge and understanding. In fact, Milton’s poem goes much further in this regard than the Bible, which does not include Raphael’s warning visit or God’s own assurance that Adam and Eve have free will.In Areopagitica, Milton's book in defence of the freedom of the press, Milton expresses this metaphorically by depicting Truth as a beautiful virgin who has been hacked to pieces by deceivers.
