Overview

Paradise Lost depicts both the adventures of Satan and the lives of Adam and Eve. Beginning with Satan's promise to corrupt God's Earth, Milton tells the tale of how Satan entered the Garden of Eden and filled Adam and Eve's angelic existence with sin. Written in blank verse, this seventeenth-century English poem solidified Milton's reputation as one of the greatest poets of his time. John Milton's sequel to Paradise Lost chronicles the temptation of Christ as represented in the Gospel of Luke. This epic poem portrays Jesus Christ, the son of God, in a plain and human light. Told in a more straight-forward manner, this work shows Milton's maturity as a poet as he attempts to reverse the loss of Paradise.

About the Author

John Milton (1608–1674) was an English poet, polemicist, man of letters, and civil servant for the Commonwealth of England under its Council of State and later under Oliver Cromwell. He wrote at a time of religious flux and political upheaval, and is best known for his epic poem Paradise Lost (1667), written in blank verse. Milton's poetry and prose reflect deep personal convictions, a passion for freedom and self-determination, and the urgent issues and political turbulence of his day.
