John Milton (9th December 1608 – 8th November 1674) was an English poet. He is best known for his epic poem ‘Paradise Lost’. ‘Paradise Lost’ is widely considered as one of the greatest works of literature. He is known for ‘Aeropagitica’ which is written in condemnation of pre-publication censorship and is among history’s most influential and impassioned defence of freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Moreover, Milton was the first modern writer to employ unrhythmed verse outside of the theatre. He is highly appreciated by William Hayley. He had considered Milton the ‘greatest English author’. Other renowned poets such as William Blake, William Wordsworth, and Thomas Hardy revered John Milton.
‘Paradise Lost’ has been considered as Milton’s masterpiece, with that his reputation was considered as one of the greatest English poets of his time. The poem relates with the biblical story of the fall of Man, the temptation of Adam & Eve by the fallen angel Satan and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden. So the theme of the book initiated with Adam and Eve’s disobedience and fall from grace. Nicely elaborates God’s plan for humankind. It seems very interesting that Satan and the rebel angel are chained to a lake of fire in Hell. But somehow they get freed themselves and fly to land and they construct one Pandemonium, a meeting place (People are excited too much). And they consider this as their meeting place. Now the rebel angels are very much anxious to fight against the Gods. Now those rebel angels have become devils.
How exactly they all start a war against the Gods? Who meet Satan at the entry level of heaven? In heaven, God tells the council of angels about Satan’s intention.
Even Satan tries to involve Adam & Eve. When God comes to know about the trick of Satan, He immediately sends someone to make them aware and to save from Satan’s game. Satan takes the form of Serpent after a close study on the animals of Paradise.
The story narrates all about the future scenario of Earth after the disobedience of Adam & Eve. Very interesting and it is one of the classic literature of its class.
A must read book that reveals such a unique and interesting theme.
