Overview

Milton's Paradise Lost is one of the greatest epic poems in the English language. It tells the story of the Fall of Man, a tale of immense drama and excitement, of rebellion and treachery, of innocence pitted against corruption, in which God and Satan fight a bitter battle for control of mankind's destiny. The struggle rages across three worlds - heaven, hell, and earth - as Satan and his band of rebel angels plot their revenge against God. At the center of the conflict are Adam and Eve, motivated by all too human temptations, but whose ultimate downfall is unyielding love.

Marked by Milton's characteristic erudition is a work epic both in scale and, notoriously, in ambition. For nearly 350 years it has held generation upon generation of scholars, students and readers in rapt attention and its profound influence can be seen in almost every corner of Western culture.

This book tells the story of the fall of man in such a new and detailed fashion, it's captivating. Though this book shouldn't necessarily be taken as non-fiction, it strengthened my beliefs as a theist only because it made the story about creation, the war of Satan against God, and Satan's vandetta against both God and man more believable through providing detailed character motive. Paradise Lost will also challenge both your knowledge of extended vocabulary, as well as history of biblical times. I recommend it to anyone capable of grasping it's story.
