Adam and Suicidal Notion

I find it so incredibly important that Milton imagined Adam in a moment of weakness. The fact that he questions the purpose of a fallen life completely blasphemes against God. For he is a divine creation and to end one’s life before God does is a sin. But Adam still questions the purpose of this fallen life. I can’t help but think that’s a glimpse into the imperfectness of man and the violence that comes with knowledge.
