Synopsis

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.

‘Greedily she engorged without restraint,
And knew not eating death;’

Milton’s Paradise Lost is a poem of epic proportions that tells of Satan’s attempts to mislead Eve into disobeying God in the Garden of Eden, by eating from the tree of knowledge. His interpretation of the biblical story of Genesis is vivid and intense in its language, justifying the actions of God to men. In his sequel poem, Paradise Regained, Milton shows Satan trying to seduce Jesus in a similar way to Eve, but ultimately failing as Jesus remains steadfast.

a bit beyond me
The rating given is a reflection on me rather than the book I struggled - I think I need to try again with this one.
