Paradise Lost is a compilation of glimpses into the musings of a writer unsatisfied with her life. Not receiving the warmth and affection she seeks from her love interest and unable to deal with her own feelings, she chooses to create her own medieval fantasy world. The writer unwittingly splits her own emotions into two distinct characters the speaker "I" (meek, mild and always devoted) and "Callisto" (aggressive, hurtful and full of rage). The writer lives vicariously through each of them in her writing. Through them she attempts to make sense of her own longing, his abandonment and her rage at being cast to the side. The relationships created in these fantasies are intense and overpowering; they are poured within the lines of the page, which allows the writer to separate herself from them just enough to continue to function in the outside world. As she loses herself in her own fantasy land the reader is left to question will the facade fall? Will it crush her when it does? Glimpse her thoughts, at various stages of her creation and discover what could happen if you lose yourself in your own mind.
