Paradise Lost (Special Edition) [NOOK Book]

Overview

The protagonist of this Protestant epic is the fallen angel, Satan. Looked at from a modern perspective it may appear to some that Milton presents Satan sympathetically, as an ambitious and prideful being who defies his tyrannical creator, omnipotent God, and wages war on Heaven, only to be defeated and cast down. Indeed, William Blake, a great admirer of Milton's, and who illustrated the epic poem, said of Milton that 'he was a true Poet, and of the Devil's party without ...

    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.

First there was Darknavy, then there was Korra. e-e<p> &starf Mate &starf <br> No, and honestly, she doesn't ever want one. She only thinks that no relationship lasts, they always end.

One day I just randomly began rping her as an IC rp. The rest is history. xD literally... [Tired of typing all of this out.]

    &starf Name &starf <br> Randomness! :D I know, I know. What a strange name for a cat. Deal wiff it. o3o <p> &starf Nicknames &starf <br> Rando, Randi (thanks to Zhiming! :P), Randeh, Randeh-Buddeh, Randelion, Randi Dandi, etc. Feel free to add one! :3 <p> &starf Gender &starf <br> Uhm, really? You should know her by now. If you didn't just catch that, you're a lost cause. ^-^ <p> &starf Age &starf <br> ANCIENT. xD Just kidding. I've rped her since.... March/April 2014, so yeah.... But I don't age my cats according to the "so many days = one moon". Like Avalanche, I age my cat via rl time. So, she was already like a year old when I began rping her, so now she'd be two years. Good enough? Better be. :P <p> &starf Clan &starf <br> That's the stupidest question yet. Haha, what do /you/ think? I live in that mighty Clan of Blood. Heh. o.e <p> &starf Rank &starf <br> Temporary Leader along with Thistlefang and Reivunfeza. Note that it's temporary. You wish it wasn't. xD I amuse myself... ;-; <p> &starf Personality &starf <br> Whale, Miss Randi has several different rsonality traits. Let's start with that she is in fact a pathological liar, like it or not. She's also intelligent, and witty, wise, and what-nurt. She's a quick thinker as well. She's also known to despise blood and gore. And even though she despises it, she will not hestitate to spar or fight. This just basically means that she hates seeing a cat die. She will kill one if need be though, so don't take this the wrong way. She can also very cheery, bright, optimistic, playful, humourous, etc., when she wants to be. But on the other hand, in a bad mood she can be snappy, ill-tempered, pessimistic, depressing, etc. She's hardly ever afraid to hide her true emotions, but when she does, it usually has a personal reason as to why. *Facepalm* Why am I even explaining her to you? You really wanna know her personality? Meet her, doofus. v-v <p> &starf Appearance &starf <br> Randi's build is lithe; which practically means lean but strong. She's slightly taller than a normal she-cat, though just by little. Her pelt is a shimmery black, as if it's been dyed. (Obviously it hasn't been.) In the sunlight, it will shine with orange-ish/purple-ish streaks. I the moonlight, it will shin with blue-ish/white-ish streaks. Her eyes ared rare for a black-coated cat, but they're a beautiful and mysterious stormy grey, that still will look bright, even when she is down in the dum<_>ps. Her entire left foreleg is an egg-shell white, up to the "armpit". Her right forepaw has dark brown-tipped toes. She has a longer tail than a normal cat's, in fact, it usually gets in the way of a spar/fight. She has three notable scars. One is a wide vertical on her stomach; given by Coyotewhisp. The other is a thin but long scar that extends from her right hip, down to her hackle; given by Starlight, a cat in a SkyClan raid. The last is three think scars on her flank, which was made by claw marks; given by a forgotten cat on a raid. She wears two necklaces, in which the first hangs higher. The first is small thin silver chain, and hung on it is a shard of an amethyst; representing her daughter, Amethyst. The other necklace is a silver linked chain, and hung on it is the red-orange toe from a bird's talon; representing her son, Talon. She used to wear one that represented Kosmos, her deceased son, but ridded of it after he died. She doesn't wear one to represent her adopted kits, River and Night, for personal reasons. :D

    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?
