God and his Son have no conflict, and Adam’s story doesn’t really begin until the Fall of Man. Therefore, Milton was forced to select

He is representative of the social class of the undeserving poor, which, means that he is not entitled to receive financial support from the government, since he is physically able to work. He lives only for the moment; from day to day. The money he gets he wastes on intoxicating himself, and he has no intentions of
