In Paradise Lost Milton tells the familiar biblical story of Adam and Eve, the serpent and the apple and the fall from paradise. Yet, through its epic reach Milton's poem becomes more than a simplistic re-telling of a well-known story. Centreing the narrative on the exiled Satan, and the all-too-human Adam and Eve, produced a poem focused on the human rather than the divine. Paradise Lost was instantly hailed as a classic, and has influenced every work of English Literature that followed it.

"Paradise Lost" is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English poet John Milton. It was originally published in 1667 in ten books, with a total of over ten thousand individual lines of verse. It is considered by critics to be Milton's "major work", and the work helped to solidify his reputation as one of the greatest English poets of his time. The poem concerns the Biblical story of the Fall of Man: the temptation of Adam and Eve by the fallen angel Satan and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden. Milton's purpose, stated in Book I, is to "justify the ways of God to men". "Paradise Regained" is a poem by Milton, published in 1671. It is connected by name to his earlier and more famous epic poem "Paradise Lost," with which it shares similar theological themes. It deals with the subject of the temptation of Christ. John Milton (1608 – 1674) was an English poet, polemicist, a scholarly man of letters, and a civil servant for the Commonwealth of England under Oliver Cromwell. Milton's poetry and prose reflect deep personal convictions, a passion for freedom and self-determination, and the urgent issues and political turbulence of his day.

"Life without illness, injury, and death is a universal human aspiration. According to the Hebrew Bible, this was the kind of life God had intended for us before our seemingly corrupt nature caused us to lose it. A never-ending struggle to regain this lost, paradisiacal existence has ensued ever since. Paradise Lost, Paradise Regained follows the evolution of the myths spun by our Hebrew ancestors in their unsuccessful efforts to reclaim the place of privilege they imagined once having in Eden. At the center of this failure is the terribly misguided explanation that humanity suffers because of its base, evil-inclined nature. By providing a new, celebratory version of the dawn of human consciousness, this book helps us understand suffering as normal, as well as helpful--a human experience that ultimately helps us learn to be more loving and caring to ourselves and others." -Amazon

Marco Polo in 1298 described 'Seyllan' as the most beautiful island of it size in the world. The Greeks and Romans praised 'Taprobane' and 18th century travellers praised 'Serendip' from which name comes the word serendipity - the luck of the unexpected.So it was for Lord Naseby, then plain Michael Morris working in challenging Calcutta, to be told one Monday morning on 10 May1963 that he must go urgently to Colombo, Ceylon to handle a crisis.This book is a celebration of Lord Naseby's subsequent unique involvement with Sri Lanka, its people and its politics over the last fifty years. During that time he has visited the island at least 20 times. He has been an official observer at a number of Presidential and General Elections, witnessed the opening of the Victoria Dam as an official guest, supported the Sri Lanka Government and people through a near-thirty year civil war and was instrumental in the UK's aid response to the devastating Tsunami of 2004. Indeed a year later the President of Sri Lanka presented him with the nation's highest award for non- nationals the Sri Lanka Ratna (Titular).This book is a powerful memoir of one man's very special relationship with a beautiful island and its people, his recollections from fifty years of a unique friendship between a British politician and the people of Sri Lanka.

A companion to the epic poem Paradise Lost, John Milton's Paradise Regained describes the temptation of Christ. After Adam and Eve are expelled from the Garden of Eden, Satan and the fallen angels stay on earth to lead people astray. But when God sends Jesus, the promised savior, to earth, Satan prepares himself for battle. As an adult, Jesus goes into the wilderness to gain strength and courage. He fasts for 40 days and nights, after which Satan tempts him with food, power, and riches. But Jesus refuses all these things, and Satan is defeated by the glory of God. This is an unabridged version of Milton's classic work, which was first published in England in 1671.
