The griding sword with discontinuous wound
Passd through him, but th’ Ethereal substance clos’d
Not long divisible, and from the gash
A stream of Nectarous humor issuing flow’d
Sanguin, such as Celestial Spirits may bleed,
And all his Armour staind ere while so bright.
Satan battles Michael, and Micheal’s sword slices through him, but no matter, he heals right up. I see CGI effects doing great here.
[Note: It seems there has never been a movie treatment of Milton’s epic, but somebody in 2007 was thinking of it! (NYTimes Article). A web-search today turned up recent news that the project was killed.]
