Focusing on the temptation of Christ, John Milton’s epic poem, Paradise Regained, suggests that everything lost to man in Paradise Lost is recaptured by Christ’s sacrifices.
Published four years after Milton’s masterpiece, Paradise Lost, Paradise Regained is much shorter and written in a simpler style than Paradise Lost, possibly as part of the author’s intention to frame the style of the book within the context of the plainness of Jesus’ teachings and demeanor. Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained have influenced numerous poets and writers, including many of the Romantics, William Blake, George Eliot, Thomas Hardy, and T. S. Eliot.

About the Author
John Milton was a seventeenth-century English poet, polemicist, and civil servant in the government of Oliver Cromwell. Among Milton’s best-known works are the classic epic Paradise Lost, Paradise Regained, considered one of the greatest accomplishments in English blank verse, and Samson Agonistes.
Writing during a period of tremendous religious and political change, Milton’s theology and politics were considered radical under King Charles I, found acceptance during the Commonwealth period, and were again out of fashion after the Restoration, when his literary reputation became a subject for debate due to his unrepentant republicanism. T.S. Eliot remarked that Milton’s poetry was the hardest to reflect upon without one’s own political and theological beliefs intruding.
