Description

"Paradise Lost". In addition to its imaginative use of language, the poem features a powerful and sympathetic portrait of Lucifer, the rebel angel who frequently outshines his moral superiors. With Milton's deft use of irony, the devil makes evil appear good, just as satanic practices may seem attractive at first glance. "Paradise Lost" has exercised enormous influence on generations of artists and their works, ranging from the Romantic poets William Blake and Percy Bysshe Shelley to Joseph Haydn's oratorio "The Creation" and J. R. R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings".

  • 10/12 books... Not good enough!

    I downloaded this wanting to look up again Satan's soliloquy in Eden, so imagine my surprise when I found it eventually in book 8 rather than nine! A quick look showed me that instead of the correct 12 this contains just 10 books. I'm not sure which are missing but many of the rest are incorrectly labeled! Get a different copy!

    While there is much to question about Milton's character and intentions in paradise lost there is no escaping that this is a work of art.
