Description

In Paradise Lost Milton tells the familiar biblical story of Adam and Eve, the serpent and the apple and the fall from paradise. Yet, through its epic reach Milton’s poem becomes more than a simplistic re-telling of a well-known story. Centreing the narrative on the exiled Satan, and the all-too-human Adam and Eve, produced a poem focused on the human rather than the divine. Paradise Lost was instantly hailed as a classic, and has influenced every work of English Literature that followed it.
