  • Gone Horribly Right: Milton definitely tried to make Satan sympathetic and heroic. In the romantic period several believed Satan to be the true hero of the story. Later, it was realized that this was on purpose, as a subversion of the (pagan) hero, and as a re-enactment of sin for the reader, who is led to sin by rooting for Satan, and subsequently shown Satan's (and his own) flawed reasoning.

This trope is not used in the work. The entry is about Milton the author. If anything, this would make it Trivia.
