As with Dante's Inferno - which has its companion "Paradiso" - Milton's Paradise Lost was followed by Paradise Regained: but Lost is his most famous work. This epic poem deals with the Christian story of Man's Fall from grace, the temptation of Adam and Eve by Satan, and their subsequent ouster from the Garden of Eden.
It also reflect's the author's political views concerning the failure of one of England's revolutions; despite your views or interest in the subject matter of Milton's poem, it is the beauty and strength of the language that have made Paradise Lost one of the most profound works in English. A final consideration is that he composed this astonishing epic of literature while totally blind (so when you're done reading it, close your eyes and listen to the free audiobook!).

This is truly an Epic poem!! It fills in most of the blanks that the creation story left out and kindoff opens your eyes to how suttle and decieving Satan is. Everyone should read this atleast once in their lifetime!
