John Milton was born in London on December 9, 1608, and studied at the University of Cambridge. He originally planned to become a clergyman, but abandoned those ambitions to become a poet. Political in his writings, he served a government post during the time of the Commonwealth. In 1651, he went completely blind but he continued to write, finishing Paradise Lost in 1667, and Paradise Regained in 1671. He died in 1674.

In my opinion John Milton seems to be a great writer, he has great discription and great poetic frazes to it but the action inhales hard. He should of told more of the battle in the first book between god and satan. That would have made it much better
