Paradise Lost

by John Milton

138 ratings, 16 reviews

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!).

Mil tons paradise lost is another great of English literature a beautiful descriptive and passionate poetical epic concerning mans fall from grace and it's subsequent consequences miltons satan is strongly depicted not as a demon as such but more with human desires and emotions the writing is rich and fantastically layered with beaury and emotional power and grace made all the more remarkable by the fact Milton was blind paradise lost is a true great of English literature and has so much to offer the characters are not easily defined as good and evil it is more than that a fantastic poetical epic of desire betrayal and the ultimate fall from divine grace

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!
