What does this Frankenstein quote mean? "But 'Paradise Lost' excited and far deeper emotions..."?
"But 'Paradise Lost' excited and far deeper emotions. I read it, as I had read the other volumes which had fallen into my hands, as a true history. It moved every feeling of wonder and awe that the picture od an omnipotent God warring with his creatures was capable of exciting. I often referred the several situation, as their similarity struck me, to my own. Like Adam, I was apparently united by no link at any other being in existence; but his state was far different from mine in every other respect. He had come forth from the hands of God a perfect creature, happy, and prosperous, guarded by, the especial care of his creator; he was allowed to converse with and acquire knowledge from beings of a superior nature, but i was wretched, helpless, and alone. Many times i considered Satan as the fitter emblem of my condition, for often, like him, when i viewed the bliss of my protectors, the bitter gall of envy rose within me."



So what is the quote all about? What can you decipher from this? Im not sure what this quote is trying to say. Can anyone help me please?!?
