"The cosmos of 'Paradise Lost':
"God's 'new world' is suspended as a self enclosed sphere above the realm of darkness ruled by 'Chaos and ancient Night.' Its nethermost realm, bolted with a great gate, adjoins Hell. From there, the wide thoroughfare is built across Chaos to the new world, as a kind of negative Jacob's Ladder.
"Homer B. Sprague, Milton's Cosmography, Boston, 1889"
