Paradise Lost is the greatest epic poem in English literature, and Milton's Satan one of its most compelling figures. The controversy has been exceeded only by its tremendous influence: countless masters of English verse have paid homage to Milton and Paradise Lost. A profound meditation on the role of man under God, Pardise Lost is essential reading.

I was fortunate enough to read the Plain English version of Paradise Lost (I actually understood what was being said) and thought it was pretty good. It was an interesting interpretation on the events of the beginning of time and mankind, and was better than I expected for a class-read. I can't believe that Milton was blind when ;he' wrote it! That's crazy!
