- By: John Milton
- Narrated by: Anton Lesser
- Length: 10 hrs and 42 mins
In words remarkable for their richness of rhythm and imagery, Milton tells the story of man's creation, fall, and redemption, "to justify the ways of God to men". Here, unabridged, and told with exceptional sensitivity and power by Anton Lesser, is the plight of Adam and Eve, the ambition and vengefulness of Satan and his cohorts.

Lesser's reading does this masterpiece justice
I never appreciated the power of Milton's pretty until I heard it read aloud, and Lesser's performance is truly brilliant.
