SparkNotes: Paradise Lost

John Milton. Many scholars consider Paradise Lost to be one of the greatest poems in the English language. It tells the biblical story of the fall from grace of Adam and Eve and, by extension, all humanity in language that is a supreme achievement of rhythm and sound. The book structure, the technique of beginning in medias res in the middle of the story , the invocation of the muse, and the use of the epic question are all classically inspired. The subject matter, however, is distinctly Christian. The Romantic poets William Blake and Percy Bysshe Shelley saw Satan as the real hero of the poem and applauded his rebellion against the tyranny of Heaven.

Milton wrote a companion piece, Paradise Regained , in , which dramatizes the temptation of Christ. We welcome suggested improvements to any of our articles.
