This paper explores three traditional presentations of the afterlife and judgment as a means of creating place within the afterlife based upon an evaluation of the individual's deeds. These three traditional works are Homer's "The Odyssey", John Milton's "Paradise Lost", and William Blake's "The Marriage of Heaven and Hell". The concept of the afterlife as is found within these three traditional works is then contrasted against the more recent film "A Matter of Life and Death" in order to witness how judgment and the afterlife manifest in a contemporary treatment of the topic.
