Sole Eve, associate sole

from John Milton – Paradise Lost, Book 8 on Rap Genius

Meaning

Eve is the only one for Adam…she’s also literally the only other person in the world

With the repetition of “sole” Adam is also alluding to Eve’s “soul”; he doesn’t just love her for her (always naked, as Milton frequently reminds us) body
