The poem concerns the Biblical 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.
A Great Book
This book, truly a masterpiece, joins the ranks of Ben Hur and Out of the Silent Planet and The Divine Comedy as a way to view the majesty and eternal plan of God. Love love love this book!
Milton was right when he says that there is no greater epic than that of the creation and salvation of man. Reading Paradise Lost I am more than informed, I am there to witness the greatest events of history.
A lovely work of literature but not as intellectually stimulating as I had expected
