It is the third speech of the fallen Arch angel Satan. He bids farewell to blessed Heaven, the abode of eternal joy.

Satan bids hell to receive the new king in the hellish region with all honours. Addressing the depth of hell, he bids it to welcome one who brings with him a mind not to be affected by the adverse circumstances of time or place. The mind is independent of external circumstances. it can live within itself. It can convert hell into heaven, that is a place of perfect happiness. Similarly, it can change heaven intp hell, that is a place of endless torment.
