Publisher's Summary

Paradise Lost is considered to be the best epic poem in the English language, as John Milton seeks to "justify the ways of God to men" through relating the story of Satan's rebellion in Heaven, the deception and fall of Man, and the presaged event of Redemption through Jesus, the Son of God...the "Second Adam."

An English cleric with a classical education, Milton lost his eyesight in 1652, and thus the story was largely dictated by the blind poet, lending a certain quality of the ancient oral epics, which only serves to enhance the telling of the tale. Weaving classical mythology with a deep knowledge and reference to Scripture, Milton's genius for narrative unfolds what his biographer, Samuel Johnson, called his "peculiar power to astonish."

    "Great Book but....."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Paradise Lost to be better than the print version?

    NO! I really like this book but I think that to get the full experience you need to make notes in the text. There is so much to this book that allows a reader to think about the Creation and what might have happened. It is a great discussion group book.


    Would you recommend Paradise Lost to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, but it would depend on which friends.

    "Best audiobook I've found"

    I did my thesis on Paradise Lost and have searched high and low for a good Paradise Lost audiobook. This is the best I've found, not even worth buying anything else.
