A plate to some of the text from John Milton's "Paradise Lost"; an epic religious poem concerning the Christian story of the Fall of Man. Satan opens the debate in Pandemonium by claiming that Heaven is not yet lost, and that the fallen angels (or devils) might rise up stronger in another battle if they work together.
