Synopsis

Paradise Lost is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English poet John Milton. It was originally published in 1667 in ten books. A second edition followed in 1674, redivided into twelve books (in the manner of the division of Virgil's Aeneid) with minor revisions throughout and a note on the versification. The poem concerns the Christian story of the Fall of Man: the temptation of Adam and Eve by the fallen angel Satan and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden.

Reviews

On Apr 9 2018, a reader said:
An epic book telling the fall of Man due to the temptation of a fallen Angel Satan. Heaven seems like a soap opera with all the Angel's vying for Gods attention. Seems like the most beautifully decorated Angel Satan throws a jealous fit when God created Mankind, and refuses to bow down to Gods favorite new creation. Satan gets cast down, and tempts Man causing our downfall as well. A wonderful read, and ancient story
