Milton Books 2&3 Daily Question—11/10

“…What if we find [344]
Some easier enterprize? There is a place 
(If ancient and prophetic fame in Heav’n
Err not) another World, the happy seat
Of some new Race call’d Man, about this time
To be created like to us, though less
In power and excellence, but favour’d more 
Of him who rules above [351]”

An enterprise is a project or undertaking, typically one that is difficult or requires great effort. But it can also be a business. Why might this oxymoron of “an easier enterprize” be used to characterize the earth and man?

Why would humans be more favored by Him than say demons? In the book of Genesis, the soil, animals and man were cursed after Adam and Eve bit into the apple. Yet somehow, humans are still considered to be more favored by God? Why wouldn’t that be extended to demons if they were fallen angels?
