    Paradise Lost appropriations?

    I need to find two appropriations (works that draw on the original text) of Paradise Lost.

    So far I have the His Dark Materials series by Philliip Pullman, but I am having trouble finding anything else.

    Any suggestions?

    Maybe Mary Shelley Frankstein or Neil Gaiman Sandman's (the Season of the Mists part)

    How about the mock-heroic works in Eighteenth-century Lit? Milton was much parodied figure then.
    "Par instants je suis le Pauvre Navire
    [...] Par instants je meurs la mort du Pecheur
    [...] O mais! par instants"

    Does it have to been in literature? If not, (CAUTION: ITS ABOUT TO GET NERDY IN HERE!!!!) what about Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith? Anakin Skywalker's submission to the dark side is reminiscent of Lucifer's fall from grace. Watching him lay, writhing on the ground, reminds me of Lucifer as a serpent. The final scene, where Darth Vader is revealed, could also be a reference to Lucifer's triumphant return to Hell.

    I think it is also present (though very vaguely) in Hawthorne's The Marble Faun. But I'd stick with the Mary Shelley.
