The epic continues into the 17th century, when John Milton wrote about Hell in Paradise Lost, and Lucifer's escape from Hell to wreak vengeance on the vengeful god who'd sent him there, by seducing and destroying God's favourite creation. That would be us. Playing fast and loose with the details of the Book of Genesis, Milton rewrote the Fall of Man as really nothing to do with man's destiny at all, but as part of the eternal battle between good and evil. For those who like their religion realigned now and then.
