Pandemonium’s Engineer Mulciber SpeciMen Trilogymulciber specimen trilogys

“And some the Architect. His hand was known. In Heaven by many a towered structure high, where sceptred Angels held their residence, and sat as Princes, whom the supreme King exalted to such power, and gave to rule, each in his hierarchy, the Orders bright. nor was his name unheard or unadorned, in ancient Greece; and in Ausonian land, men called him Mulciber; and how he fell. From Heaven they fabled, thrown by angry Jove. Sheer o’er the crystal battlements: from morn. To noon he fell, from noon to dewy eve… A summer’s day, and with the setting sun… dropt from the zenith, like a falling star, on Lemnos, the Ægæan isle. Thus they relate, erring; for he with this rebellious route, fell long before; nor aught availed him now, to have built in Heaven high towers; nor did he scape, by all his engines, but was headlong sent, with his industrious crew, to build in Hell…”

~ John Milton, Paradise Lost
