Illustration 1 to Milton's Paradise Lost: Satan Calling Up His Legions, 1807 (ink & w/c on paper), Blake, William (1757-1827). Satan, his serpent-form already suggested by scales over his genitals, rallies the other fallen angels in hell. The still-heroic physiques of the angels and their contorted postures are indebted to Michelangelo's fresco of the Last Judgement.
