About the Author
John Milton was a British poet writing in the 17th century. His three major works, Paradise Lost, Paradise Regained, and Samson Agonistes (all completed after he went blind in 1652) show his mastery of blank verse. He is generally regarded as one of the preeminent writers in the English language.

This book tells the story of the fall of man in such a new and detailed fashion, it's captivating. Though this book shouldn't necessarily be taken as non-fiction, it strengthened my beliefs as a theist only because it made the story about creation, the war of Satan against God, and Satan's vandetta against both God and man more believable through providing detailed character motive. Paradise Lost will also challenge both your knowledge of extended vocabulary, as well as history of biblical times. I recommend it to anyone capable of grasping it's story.
Truly inspiring. If you told me 10 years ago that I would love teaching these poems, I'd have laughed in your face. But Milton has a beautiful way of taking a few, sparse Bible verses and turning them into a human narrative that you can understand and relate to. Book Three of Paradise Lost is, in my opinion, nothing short of inspired genius.
Paradise Lost is an epic poem in the same tradition of Homer, Virgil, Dante and Shakespeare. Milton, like many of his time, wrote about (or against) religion, thus incurring the wrath of the church. It doesn't matter, though, for Milton's account of the fall of man is far better than Gensis. Although it may be hard to read, it should be read-- especially because it sparked Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy. I read Paradise Lost alongside His Dark Materials in order to get a clear picture of the main story and the deviations each author took.
