Paradise Lost is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English poet John Milton. It was originally published in 1667 (though written nearly ten years earlier) in ten books, with a total of over ten thousand individual lines of verse. A second edition followed in 1674, re-divided into twelve books (in the manner of the division of Virgil's Aeneid) with minor revisions throughout and a note on the versification; the majority of the poem was written while Milton was blind, and was transcribed for him.

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. Milton's purpose, stated in Book I, is to "justify the ways of God to men" and elucidate the conflict between God's eternal foresight and free will. Although Milton’s book is about the Fall of Man, the character Satan appears several times as the hero; a character more interesting and intriguing than God himself, which might elucidate that Paradise Lost is in fact a poem questioning the church’s power (a common theme during the English Renaissance) rather than simply a description of the temptation of Adam and Eve.

Milton incorporates Paganism, classical Greek references, and Christianity within the poem. It deals with diverse topics from marriage, politics (Milton was politically active during the time of the English Civil War), and monarchy, and grapples with many difficult theological issues, including fate, predestination, the Trinity, and the introduction of sin and death into the world, as well as angels, fallen angels, Satan, and the war in heaven. Milton draws on his knowledge of languages, and diverse sources – primarily Genesis, much of the New Testament, the deuterocanonical Book of Enoch, and other parts of the Old Testament. Milton's epic is generally considered one of the greatest literary works in the English language. (Wikipedia)

    Milton's endless perdition of nothing

    If you have insomnia, or would like to hear a crazy and bored evangelical maniac's carp version of the fall of man, by all means buy this book. If you wish the bible was more wordy and full of endless descriptions of nothing this book is for you. If you are a normal person and have absolutly no trouble sleeping avoid this garbage. If you're looking for a good book along these lines that won't bore you to tears, try Dante's Inferno. Al least he writes something that's interesting and at times amusing.

    Bad formatting

    This ebook was very poorly formatted. The first letters of most lines in the poem were missing. Needless to say, it rendered the text very difficult to read. But what can you expect for 99 cents?
