제국주의자 사탄 : 신세계와 제국주의에 관한 밀턴의 견해
The Imperialist Satan: A View on Milton's Imperialism and the New World
The image of the new world is presumed to be important in Milton's poetry. In Milton's Paradise Lost, the new world is important and the imperialistic threat of Satan to the new world is also one of the major interests in this epic. Satan launches into the chaos to find the new world with some curiosity for the new world and its dwellers. Satan, however, betrays his distorted view on the new world and its people, which we can find in the European new world explorers. Satan's journey to the new world also looks like the explorer of the new world and merchants from the colonized land. Eden is described with realistic geographical details. With its firm root in geography Eden seems to be more real than just an imaginary paradise. Satan is looking at the garden of Eden with the eye of an imperialist. And we are introduced to Eden by and with Satan. Satan also sees beyond the outward meaning of Eden, which the residents seem to overlook. But his imperialistic insight deteriorates the meaning of Eden. Milton employs the image of the middle age maps which placed the world in the middle and with the outer world full of monsters and horrible things. Satan journeys from the monstrous world to the new, paradisiacal land. Satan is conscious of his journey to the new land. It means that he has the identity of the old world. Here, not only imperialism, in which Satan seems to believe, but also the old world, which supports the causes for the imperialism is heavily criticized. The new world in this epic which the imperialists want to colonize is in the religious and political level.
