I know for a fact at least one of the subcultures that loved Bunyan thought Milton was Sinful, you could tell by how sympathetic he made Satan. (I think there's also the factor where if this is in fact the sea you swim in ALL THE TIME the allegory eventually seems less "I am being punched in the face" and becomes more Well Of Course That's How The World Works, and becomes very affirming and reassuring instead.)
