Hi! I am doing an EPQ on religion in Literature (more specifically Christianity), and I would be really grateful for any contribution anyone could offer- however small it would be helpful. My question is 'How far do John Milton, C.S. Lewis and Philip Pullman conform to traditional Christian ideology in their respective works 'Paradise Lost' 'The Chronicles of Narnia' and 'His Dark Materials'.
I am looking in particular at the depiction of women, the treatment of Satan and the idea of heaven in each of the three works. I am also using social and biographical context of each to compare what we might expect to what we actually find in each work. For example, one of my ideas is that Satan is unquestionably evil in Christianity, and therefore does Milton not conform (despite strongly religious contemporary society) by making him sympathetic to the reader??
Any help with any of the texts would be amazing!!!
