John Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost, published in 1667, first shows Lucifer in heaven— as does this illustration of Satan in His Original Glory by William Blake—then follows him through his fall into hell. The following passage is from books 7 and 10 of Paradise Lost.

Know then, that after Lucifer from heaven
(So call him, brighter once amidst the host
Of angels, than that star the stars among)
Fell with his flaming legions through the deep
Into his place, and the great son returned
Victorious with his saints, the omnipotent
Eternal father from his throne beheld
Their multitude, and to his Son thus spake…
Through the gate,
Wide open and unguarded, Satan passed,
And all about found desolate; for those
Appointed to sit there, had left their charge,
Flown to the upper world; the rest were all
Far to the inland retired, about the walls
Of Pandemonium, city and pround seat
Of Lucifer, so by allusion called,
Of that bright star to Satan paragoned.
