Paradise Lost

Paradise Lost Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Paradise Lost is a tale of good and evil on the grandest scale - the struggle between God and the Devil for the soul of humankind. Beginning with Satan's fall from heaven, the poem then follows Adam and Eve's temptation and ultimate expulsion from the Garden of Eden. John Milton wrote Paradise Lost to justify the ways of God to men, particularly the concept of free will. To many, it is most notable for its lively anti-hero, Satan, who despite Milton's piety comes off as an almost romantic character. One of the most famous poems in the English language, Paradise Lost is a must-read for all those who are interested in our literary heritage, as well as lovers of good poetry.
