Paradise Lost

Type: Books

Alongside the Homeric epic tales, Paradise Lost is one of the greatest works of literature, now in a gorgeous edition from Flame Tree.

Paradise Lost tells of the expulsion from Eden and the war of Heaven that followed, exploring the fall of humanity and the rebellion of the fallen angels from the perspective of Satan and mortal kind. Milton's epic poem, written in 10,000 lines of blank verse divided into 12 sections, was a reflection of the political upheaval that led to the English Civil war.
