LINES 498-629. SATAN ON THE SUN

Leaving Limbo, Satan comes to the opening in the top of the World where he can look down into the concentric circles and up the stairs to Heaven. He stands in amazement looking down into the World, like a soldier on military reconnaissance who finds himself suddenly looking down on a new land or a magnificent city.



He throws himself down into the World and passes through the circle of the stars to land on the sun. The place is "beyond expression bright," brighter than jewels or the philosophers' stone which was said to turn any metal into gold. There are of course no shadows on the sun, so Satan easily sees an angel standing there with his back to him.
