The Romantic idea of the hero, derived from the concept of the sublime, stands in contradiction to the classical epic notion of the hero as one devoted to the welfare of his family and people. The Romantic hero is individual, alone against the world, self-assertive, ambitious, powerful, and liberator in rebellion against the society that blocks the way of progress toward liberty, beauty, and love; the Romantics read these qualities into Milton’s Satan. 
-  Jeffrey Burton Russell; “The Romantic Devil”
