The other shape , If shape it might be call'd that shape had none Distinguishable in member, joynt , or limb, Or substance might be call'd that shadow seem'd , For each seem'd either; black it stood as Night, [ ] Fierce as ten Furies , terrible as Hell, And shook a dreadful Dart; what seem'd his head The likeness of a Kingly Crown had on. Satan was now at hand, and from his seat The Monster moving onward came as fast [ ] With horrid strides, Hell trembled as he strode.

Th' undaunted Fiend what this might be admir'd , Admir'd , not fear'd ; God and his Son except , Created thing naught valu'd he nor shun'd And with disdainful look thus first began. Whence and what art thou, execrable shape, That dar'st , though grim and terrible, advance Thy miscreated Front athwart my way To yonder Gates?
The Other Side of Heaven 2: Fire of Faith
To whom the Goblin full of wrauth reply'd , Art thou that Traitor Angel, art thou hee , Who first broke peace in Heav'n and Faith, till then [ ] Unbrok'n , and in proud rebellious Arms Drew after him the third part of Heav'ns Sons Conjur'd against the highest, for which both Thou And they outcast from God, are here condemn'd To waste Eternal dayes in woe and pain? Back to thy punishment, False fugitive, and to thy speed add wings, [ ] Least with a whip of Scorpions I pursue Thy lingring , or with one stroke of this Dart Strange horror seise thee, and pangs unfelt before.
So spake the grieslie terror, and in shape, So speaking and so threatning , grew tenfold [ ] More dreadful and deform: on th' other side Incenst with indignation Satan stood Unterrifi'd , and like a Comet burn'd , That fires the length of Ophiucus huge In th' Artick Sky, and from his horrid hair [ ] Shakes Pestilence and Warr. Each at the Head Level'd his deadly aime ; thir fatall hands No second stroke intend, and such a frown Each cast at th' other, as when two black Clouds With Heav'ns Artillery fraught, come rattling on [ ] Over the Caspian, then stand front to front Hov'ring a space, till Winds the signal blow To join thir dark Encounter in mid air: So frownd the mighty Combatants, that Hell Grew darker at thir frown, so matcht they stood; [ ] For never but once more was either like To meet so great a foe: and now great deeds Had been achiev'd , whereof all Hell had rung, Had not the Snakie Sorceress that sat Fast by Hell Gate, and kept the fatal Key, [ ] Ris'n , and with hideous outcry rush'd between.
O Father, what intends thy hand, she cry'd , Against thy only Son? She spake, and at her words the hellish Pest [ ] Forbore, then these to her Satan return'd :. So strange thy outcry, and thy words so strange Thou interposest, that my sudden hand Prevented spares to tell thee yet by deeds What it intends; till first I know of thee, [ ] What thing thou art, thus double- form'd , and why In this infernal Vaile first met thou call'st Me Father, and that Fantasm call'st my Son? I know thee not, nor ever saw till now Sight more detestable then him and thee.
T' whom thus the Portress of Hell Gate reply'd ; Hast thou forgot me then, and do I seem Now in thine eye so foul, once deemd so fair In Heav'n , when at th' Assembly, and in sight Of all the Seraphim with thee combin'd [ ] In bold conspiracy against Heav'ns King, All on a sudden miserable pain Surprisd thee, dim thine eyes, and dizzie swumm In darkness, while thy head flames thick and fast Threw forth, till on the left side op'ning wide, [ ] Likest to thee in shape and count'nance bright, Then shining Heav'nly fair, a Goddess arm'd Out of thy head I sprung ; amazement seis'd All th' Host of Heav'n back they recoild affraid At first, and call'd me Sin, and for a Sign [ ] Portentous held me; but familiar grown, I pleas'd , and with attractive graces won The most averse, thee chiefly, who full oft Thy self in me thy perfect image viewing Becam'st enamour'd , and such joy thou took'st [ ] With me in secret, that my womb conceiv'd A growing burden.
Mean while Warr arose, And fields were fought in Heav'n ; wherein remaind For what could else to our Almighty Foe Cleer Victory, to our part loss and rout [ ] Through all the Empyrean: down they fell Driv'n headlong from the Pitch of Heaven, down Into this Deep, and in the general fall I also; at which time this powerful Key Into my hand was giv'n , with charge to keep [ ] These Gates for ever shut, which none can pass Without my op'ning.
Pensive here I sat Alone, but long I sat not, till my womb Pregnant by thee, and now excessive grown Prodigious motion felt and rueful throes. I fled, but he pursu'd though more, it seems, [ ] Inflam'd with lust then rage and swifter far, Mee overtook his mother all dismaid , And in embraces forcible and foule Ingendring with me, of that rape begot These yelling Monsters that with ceasless cry [ ] Surround me, as thou sawst , hourly conceiv'd And hourly born, with sorrow infinite To me, for when they list into the womb That bred them they return, and howle and gnaw My Bowels, thir repast; then bursting forth [ ] A fresh with conscious terrours vex me round, That rest or intermission none I find.
Before mine eyes in opposition sits Grim Death my Son and foe, who sets them on, And me his Parent would full soon devour [ ] For want of other prey, but that he knows His end with mine involvd ; and knows that I Should prove a bitter Morsel, and his bane, Whenever that shall be; so Fate pronounc'd. But thou O Father, I forewarn thee, shun [ ] His deadly arrow; neither vainly hope To be invulnerable in those bright Arms, Though temper'd heav'nly , for that mortal dint , Save he who reigns above, none can resist.
She finish'd , and the suttle Fiend his lore [ ] Soon learnd , now milder, and thus answerd smooth. He ceas'd , for both seem'd highly pleasd , and Death [ ] Grinnd horrible a gastly smile, to hear His famine should be fill'd , and blest his mawe Destin'd to that good hour: no less rejoyc'd His mother bad, and thus bespake her Sire.
The key of this infernal Pit by due, [ ] And by command of Heav'ns all-powerful King I keep, by him forbidden to unlock These Adamantine Gates; against all force Death ready stands to interpose his dart, Fearless to be o'rmatcht by living might.
Thus saying, from her side the fatal Key, Sad instrument of all our woe, she took; And towards the Gate rouling her bestial train, Forthwith the huge Porcullis high up drew, Which but her self not all the Stygian powers [ ] Could once have mov'd ; then in the key-hole turns Th' intricate wards , and every Bolt and Bar Of massie Iron or sollid Rock with ease Unfast'ns : on a sudden op'n flie With impetuous recoile and jarring sound [ ] Th' infernal dores , and on thir hinges grate Harsh Thunder, that the lowest bottom shook Of Erebus.
She op'nd , but to shut Excel'd her power; the Gates wide op'n stood, That with extended wings a Bannerd Host [ ] Under spread Ensigns marching might pass through With Horse and Chariots rankt in loose array; So wide they stood, and like a Furnace mouth Cast forth redounding smoak and ruddy flame. For hot, cold, moist, and dry , four Champions fierce Strive here for Maistrie , and to Battel bring Thir embryon Atoms; they around the flag [ ] Of each his faction, in thir several Clanns , Light- arm'd or heavy, sharp, smooth, swift or slow, Swarm populous, unnumber'd as the Sands Of Barca or Cyrene's torrid soil, Levied to side with warring Winds, and poise [ ] Thir lighter wings.
To whom these most adhere, Hee rules a moment; Chaos Umpire sits, And by decision more imbroiles the fray By which he Reigns: next him high Arbiter Chance governs all. Into this wilde Abyss, [ ] The Womb of nature and perhaps her Grave, Of neither Sea, nor Shore, nor Air, nor Fire, But all these in thir pregnant causes mixt Confus'dly , and which thus must ever fight, Unless th' Almighty Maker them ordain [ ] His dark materials to create more Worlds, Into this wild Abyss the warie fiend Stood on the brink of Hell and look'd a while, Pondering his Voyage: for no narrow frith He had to cross.
Nor was his eare less peal'd [ ] With noises loud and ruinous to compare Great things with small then when Bellona storms, With all her battering Engines bent to rase Som Capital City; or less then if this frame Of Heav'n were falling, and these Elements [ ] In mutinie had from her Axle torn The stedfast Earth. At last his Sail-broad Vannes He spreads for flight, and in the surging smoak Uplifted spurns the ground, thence many a League As in a cloudy Chair ascending rides [ ] Audacious, but that seat soon failing, meets A vast vacuitie : all unawares Fluttring his pennons vain plumb down he drops Ten thousand fadom deep, and to this hour Down had been falling, had not by ill chance [ ] The strong rebuff of som tumultuous cloud Instinct with Fire and Nitre hurried him As many miles aloft: that furie stay'd , Quencht in a Boggy Syrtis, neither Sea, Nor good dry Land: nigh founderd on he fares, [ ] Treading the crude consistence, half on foot, Half flying; behoves him now both Oare and Saile.
T' whom Satan turning boldly, thus. Ye Powers And Spirits of this nethermost Abyss, Chaos and ancient Night, I come no Spy, [ ] With purpose to explore or to disturb The secrets of your Realm, but by constraint Wandring this darksome Desart , as my way Lies through your spacious Empire up to light, Alone, and without guide, half lost, I seek [ ] What readiest path leads where your gloomie bounds Confine with Heav'n ; or if som other place From your Dominion won, th' Ethereal King Possesses lately, thither to arrive I travel this profound, direct my course; [ ] Directed no mean recompence it brings To your behoof, if I that Region lost, All usurpation thence expell'd , reduce To her original darkness and your sway Which is my present journey and once more [ ] Erect the Standard there of ancient Night ; Yours be th' advantage all, mine the revenge.
Thus Satan ; and him thus the Anarch old With faultring speech and visage incompos'd Answer'd. I know thee, stranger, who thou art, [ ] That mighty leading Angel, who of late Made head against Heav'ns King, though overthrown. I saw and heard, for such a numerous Host Fled not in silence through the frighted deep With ruin upon ruin, rout on rout, [ ] Confusion worse confounded; and Heav'n Gates Pourd out by millions her victorious Bands Pursuing.
I upon my Frontieres here Keep residence; if all I can will serve, That little which is left so to defend [ ] Encroacht on still through our intestine broiles Weakning the Scepter of old Night : first Hell Your dungeon stretching far and wide beneath; Now lately Heaven and Earth, another World Hung ore my Realm, link'd in a golden Chain [ ] To that side Heav'n from whence your Legions fell: If that way be your walk, you have not farr ; So much the neerer danger; go and speed; Havock and spoil and ruin are my gain.
He ceas'd ; and Satan staid not to reply, [ ] But glad that now his Sea should find a shore, With fresh alacritie and force renew'd Springs upward like a Pyramid of fire Into the wilde expanse, and through the shock Of fighting Elements, on all sides round [ ] Environ'd wins his way; harder beset And more endanger'd , then when Argo pass'd Through Bosporus betwixt the justling Rocks: Or when Ulysses on the Larbord shunnd Charybdis, and by th' other whirlpool steard.
Sin and Death amain Following his track, such was the will of Heav'n , [ ] Pav'd after him a broad and beat'n way Over the dark Abyss, whose boiling Gulf Tamely endur'd a Bridge of wondrous length From Hell continu'd reaching th' utmost Orbe Of this frail World ; by which the Spirits perverse [ ] With easie intercourse pass to and fro To tempt or punish mortals, except whom God and good Angels guard by special grace.
But now at last the sacred influence Of light appears, and from the walls of Heav'n [ ] Shoots farr into the bosom of dim Night A glimmering dawn; here Nature first begins Her fardest verge, and Chaos to retire As from her outmost works a brok'n foe With tumult less and with less hostile din, [ ] That Satan with less toil, and now with ease Wafts on the calmer wave by dubious light And like a weather-beaten Vessel holds Gladly the Port, though Shrouds and Tackle torn; Or in the emptier waste, resembling Air, [ ] Weighs his spread wings, at leasure to behold Farr off th' Empyreal Heav'n , extended wide In circuit, undetermind square or round , With Opal Towrs and Battlements adorn'd Of living Saphire , once his native Seat; [ ] And fast by hanging in a golden Chain This pendant world , in bigness as a Starr Of smallest Magnitude close by the Moon.
Thither full fraught with mischievous revenge, Accurst, and in a cursed hour he hies. BOOK 2 THE ARGUMENT The Consultation begun, Satan debates whether another Battel be to be hazarded for the recovery of Heaven: some advise it, others dissuade: A third proposal is prefer'd , mention'd before by Satan , to search the truth of that Prophesie or Tradition in Heaven concerning another world, and another kind of creature equal or not much inferiour to themselves, about this time to be created: Thir doubt who shall be sent on this difficult search: Satan thir chief undertakes alone the voyage, is honourd and applauded.
Samson Agonistes. Creative Commons License. About the Editor. This equality of men by nature, the judicious Hooker looks upon as so evident in itself, and beyond all question, that he makes it the foundation of that obligation to mutual love amongst men, on which he builds the duties they owe one another, and from whence he derives the great maxims of justice and charity.
His words are,. To have any thing offered them repugnant to this desire, must needs in all respects grieve them as much as me; so that if I do harm, I must look to suffer, there being no reason that others should shew greater measure of love to me, than they have by me shewed unto them: my desire therefore to be loved of my equals in nature, as much as possible may be, imposeth upon me a natural duty of bearing to them-ward fully the like affection; from which relation of equality between ourselves and them that are as ourselves, what several rules and canons natural reason hath drawn, for direction of life, no man is ignorant.
But though this be a state of liberty, yet it is not a state of license: though man in that state have an uncontroulable liberty to dispose of his person or possessions, yet he has not liberty to destroy himself, or so much as any creature in his possession, but where some nobler use than its bare preservation calls for it.

Every one, as he is bound to preserve himself, and not to quit his station wilfully, so by the like reason, when his own preservation comes not in competition, ought he, as much as he can, to preserve the rest of mankind, and may not, unless it be to do justice on an offender, take away, or impair the life, or what tends to the preservation of the life, the liberty, health, limb, or goods of another. And if any one in the state of nature may punish another for any evil he has done, every one may do so: for in that state of perfect equality, where naturally there is no superiority or jurisdiction of one over another, what any may do in prosecution of that law, every one must needs have a right to do.
And thus, in the state of nature, one man comes by a power over another; but yet no absolute or arbitrary power, to use a criminal, when he has got him in his hands, according to the passionate heats, or boundless extravagancy of his own will; but only to retribute to him, so far as calm reason and conscience dictate, what is proportionate to his transgression, which is so much as may serve for reparation and restraint: for these two are the only reasons, why one man may lawfully do harm to another, which is that we call punishment.
In transgressing the law of nature, the offender declares himself to live by another rule than that of reason and common equity, which is that measure God has set to the actions of men, for their mutual security; and so he becomes dangerous to mankind, the tye, which is to secure them from injury and violence, being slighted and broken by him. Which being a trespass against the whole species, and the peace and safety of it, provided for by the law of nature, every man upon this score, by the right he hath to preserve mankind in general, may restrain, or where it is necessary, destroy things noxious to them, and so may bring such evil on any one, who hath transgressed that law, as may make him repent the doing of it, and thereby deter him, and by his example others, from doing the like mischief.
And in this case, and upon this ground, every man hath a right to punish the offender, and be executioner of the law of nature.

I doubt not but this will seem a very strange doctrine to some men: but before they condemn it, I desire them to resolve me, by what right any prince or state can put to death, or punish an alien, for any crime he commits in their country. It is certain their laws, by virtue of any sanction they receive from the promulgated will of the legislative, reach not a stranger: they speak not to him, nor, if they did, is he bound to hearken to them.
The legislative authority, by which they are in force over the subjects of that commonwealth, hath no power over him. Those who have the supreme power of making laws in England, France or Holland, are to an Indian, but like the rest of the world, men without authority: and therefore, if by the law of nature every man hath not a power to punish offences against it, as he soberly judges the case to require, I see not how the magistrates of any community can punish an alien of another country; since, in reference to him, they can have no more power than what every man naturally may have over another.
Besides the crime which consists in violating the law, and varying from the right rule of reason, whereby a man so far becomes degenerate, and declares himself to quit the principles of human nature, and to be a noxious creature, there is commonly injury done to some person or other, and some other man receives damage by his transgression; in which case he who hath received any damage, has, besides the right of punishment common to him with other men, a particular right to seek reparation from him that has done it: and any other person, who finds it just, may also join with him that is injured, and assist him in recovering from the offender so much as may make satisfaction for the harm he has suffered.
From these two distinct rights, the one of punishing the crime for restraint, and preventing the like offence, which right of punishing is in every body; the other of taking reparation, which belongs only to the injured party, comes it to pass that the magistrate, who by being magistrate hath the common right of punishing put into his hands, can often, where the public good demands not the execution of the law, remit the punishment of criminal offences by his own authority, but yet cannot remit the satisfaction due to any private man for the damage he has received.
After receiving no reply to her letter to her mother, Liesel decided to give herself a present, by taking some money to buy a stamp and mailing the five letters she had written her mother. Rosa beat her when she found out the reason for the missing money. Rosa was sad about the circumstance surrounding Liesel's mother, but all Liesel could see was the darkness of the situation around her.
It was for a big bonfire to commemorate the occasion. In honor of the birthday Hans Junior and Trudy, Rosa and Hans' children, came home to celebrate with their parents. Hans Junior was a member of the Nazi Party and was angry, because his father was not a member. He and Hans had an argument about this matter, which culminated with Hans Junior calling his father a coward and leaving his parents' home forever.
Liesel and her fellow members of the Hitler Youth marched towards the town square, where a bonfire was to be lit. A speaker at the bonfire talked about the need to eliminate communists from Germany. Liesel's father was a communist and now she understood why he was considered an outcast. During the bonfire Liesel met up with an injured Ludwig Schmeikl and the two of them apologized for their behavior on the playground. Hans Hubermann found Liesel sitting on the church steps watching the men clean up from bonfire.
Liesel who had been thinking about what she had heard, asked him if her mother was a communist. Hans slapped her across the face and told her to never say that in public again. As the two of them are leaving the town square, Hans was hailed by a friend.

It was while he was talking that Liesel wandered over to the fire and noticed a few books which had not been burned. She seized her chance and grabbed one of the books. It was titled The Shoulder Shrug and was still burning. Liesel knew someone had seen her take the book, but she walked home with Hans, as the book continued to burn inside its hiding place, her uniform.
