JOHN MILTON,

PARADISE LOST.

Book IX.

The Argument. Satan, having compassed the Earth, with medi

tated guile returns, as a mist, by night into Paradise; enters into the serpent sleeping. Adam and Eve in the morning go forth to their labours, which Eve proposes to divide in several places, each labouring apart: Adam consents not, alleging the danger, lest that enemy, of whom they were forewarned, should attempt her found alone: Eve, loth to be thought not circumspect or firm enough, urges her going apart, the rather desirous to make trial of her strength; Adam at last yields : the serpent finds her alone; his subtle approach, first gazing, then speaking ; with much flattery extolling Eve above all other

Eve, wondering to hear the serpent speak, asks how he attained to human speech, and such understanding, not till now; the ser

creatures.
