Concept: Illusion Flamineo " Glories, like glow-worms far off shine bright, But looked to near, have neither heat nor light" PL "Innocence, that as a veil had shadowed them from knowing ill, was gone" Different purpose via same medium- Milton strives for truth and intellectual freedom; proof in arguments for the end of censorship in Areopagitica.
