Milton's Hell in paradise lost is your typical fire and brimstone overheated cavern, "No light, but rather darkness visible Served only to discover sights of woe.....fiery deluge, fed With ever-burning sulphur unconsumed...." It is a place of unspeakable sadness and pain. It is an eternal prison of the soul not necessarily because the place is hotter than Mercury but rather that it is a place without God's light, "As fat removed from God and light of Heaven

As from the centre thrice to the utmost pole."
