Vikki, and Luke of course:
Concerning "Wrath of Khan":
"Paradise Lost" is in there certainly, but also "Moby Dick"-- themes of
obsession, etc. Check out some of Khan's lines ("He taxes me, he taxes me"),
and then compare him to Ahab in Melville's work.You could compare "Khan" with
the 'official' "Moby Dick" adaptation (isn't it by John Huston?).
Hope I was helpful,
