Overview

Paradise Lost and Other Poems by John Milton

Paradise Lost revivifies Adam's fall from the Garden of Eden. Samson Agonistes follows blind Samson, whose titanic strength destroyed both himself and the Philistines to bring his people deliverance. Lycidas is a pastoral lamentation for a Cambridge student who drowned, and an immortal elegy of all lost hopes.

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
