ANALYSIS OF ADDISON'S CRITICISM ON PARADISE LOST: BEING AN EPITOME OF THE FIRST SIX OF THE PAPERS IN THE "SPECTATOR." I. The Fable. Three qualifications in the Action related by the Fable: (1.) It should be but one action. (2.) It should be an entire action. (3.) It should be a great action. (1.) Unity. (2.) Completeness. (8.) Greatness. 1. The unity of the action is preserved in the Iliad:—The poem opens with the contention of Achilles and Agamemnon, while an account of everything material that relates to them is interwoven in the succeeding parts. In the JEneid :—The first appearance of jEueas is in the Tyrrhene seas within sight of Italy, where he was afterwards to settle and found a new race ; his previous history is related by way of episode in the Second and Third Books. In Paradise Lost:—It opens with an infernal council plotting the Fall of Man,—the action of the Poem; other actions, prior in point of time, are related in subsequent books in the form of episodes. While the Iliad and the Mneid, are imperfect under this head, Paradise Lost has no episodes but such as naturally arise from the subject. 2. An action is entire when it is complete in all its parts, or, according to Aristotle's definition, when it has a beginning, a middle, and an end. In the Iliad:—The anger of Achilles is seen in its birth, continuance, and effects. In the JEneid :—jEneas finally settles in Italy, in spite of all the opposition he encounters hy sea and land. In Paradise Lost:—We seethe action of the Poem contrived in Hell, executed on Earth, and punished by Heaven. Paradise Lost excels the Iliad and the Mneid in this particularalso. 3. An epic poem should be great, (a) in its nature, (b) in its duration, i. e. it should have a due length. (a...
