Satan is out for revenge. His rebellion has failed, he has been cast out from heaven and is doomed to spend eternity in hell. Somehow he must find a way to prove his power and wound his enemies. He fixes upon God's beloved new creations, Adam and Eve, as the vehicles of his vengeance. In this dramatic and influential epic, Milton tells the story of the serpent and the apple, the fall of man and the exile from paradise in stunningly vivid and powerful verse.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Offers an intensely filmic description of the events that countless artists have sought to visualise - The Times

Milton represents the English imagination at its most organised, disciplined and sublime - Guardian

Never was a work of literature so imbued with the visual. He creates a universe that never existed, and paints it so you see it and are overwhelmed by its immensity, its magnificent splendour at the top end, the great dark plains and huge rocky mountains, the fires and storms at the other - and the horror of the void between - Independent

I read Paradise Lost when I was 11, and it made me suddenly realise that the Devil was sexy, which was quite muddling at that age and had disastrous consequences in that I then lusted after unsuitable men for the rest of my life - Daily Mail

When the blind John Milton came to retell the story of Genesis in book seven of Paradise Lost he dwelt with understandable poignancy on the sheer visual loveliness of the newly created world. Anyone who thinks Milton is a pedantic old bore should peruse the lines that celebrate the wonder and beauty of birds' flight, migration and song - Financial Times

“a bit beyond me”

The rating given is a reflection on me rather than the book I struggled - I think I need to try again with this one.

“An emotional roller coaster but ends on a summit.”

Paradise Lost start on an up with the defeat of Satan and his army of fallen angels; then after the story of creation there is the massive drop as Eve and Adam succumb to the serpants temptation but concludes on the... More
