Astronomy of Milton's Paradise Lost by Orchard, Thomas N. and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Milton's nephew, Edward Philips, names the textbook from which he and Milton's other pupil, learned the elements of astronomy.

It was the De Sphaera of Joannes de Sacro-bosco, or John Holywood. In his choice of this work, as in that of the geography by Pierre Davity,' Milton shows his willingness to use in teaching the common manuals of his time. Milton will also introduce a third Hell, an inner, psychological Hell.

At the start of Book IV, Satan has a soliloquy in which he concludes, "Which way I fly is Hell; myself am Hell" (75). This inner Hell is as much a part of Milton's universe as the physical lake of fire.

At the halfway point of the twelve books of Paradise Lost, Milton once more invokes a muse, but this time it is Urania, the Muse of Astronomy. Milton refers to her in Christian terms, as a source of inspiration much like the Holy Spirit. 2 Milton never used this term in his poetical works, but the neologism seems justified since all rel-evant terms such as “universe” or “world,” both used by Milton, cross-reference each other in the OED (s.v.

Book VII opens with another prologue to Urania, who in classical mythology was the Muse of Astronomy but whom Milton has transformed into a heavenly or Christian inspiration.

Milton begins Paradise Lost in the traditional epic manner with a prologue invoking the muse, in this case Urania, the Muse of Astronomy. He calls her the "Heav'nly Muse" (7) and says that he will sing "Of Man's First Disobedience" (1), the story of Adam and Eve and their fall from grace.
