Martin translates Milton’s description of hell in book 1:

" . ., [Satan] with his horrid crew
Lay vanquished, rolling in the fiery gulf
. . . he views
The dismal situation waste and wild,
A dungeon horrible, on all sides round
As one great furnace flamed, yet from those flames
No light, but rather darkness visible. . ."
