Abstract
  • This thesis is the transformation of Book IV of Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost into graphic novel format. Transforming Milton’s epic Paradise Lost into a graphic novel offers the advantages of making the material more accessible for students, and easier to understand. The aim is to make the poem more interesting to them so that students might explore the original work further on their own. There is value in reinterpreting the work this way. Paradise Lost is a difficult read, and Milton is very hard on his readers. The genre of the graphic novel is a union of the highly abstract and invisible world provided by words, and the visible world of art. This combination of received with perceived information would help chip away at the difficulties in understanding that arise for students reading Paradise Lost, like the old adage: “a picture is worth a thousand words.”
