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

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.

Paradise Regained is a poem by English poet John Milton, first published in 1671.The volume in which it appeared also contained the poet's closet drama Samson Agonistes. Paradise Regained is connected by name to his earlier and more famous epic poem Paradise Lost, with which it shares similar theological themes; indeed, its title, its use of blank verse, and its progression through Christian history recall the earlier work. However, this effort deals primarily with the temptation of Christ as recounted in the Gospel of Luke.

Edited by William Kerrigan, John Rumrich, and Stephen M. Fallon Derived from the Modern Library’s esteemed The Complete Poetry and Essential Prose of John Milton, this new volume, extensively revised and updated by its editors, contains Milton’s two late masterpieces, the brief epic Paradise Regained and the tragic drama Samson Agonistes. Age after age, these works have inspired new controversy and exciting interpretive debates. With expert commentary to guide the reader through historical contexts and verbal details, as well as the larger political and philosophical implications, the concerns of these canonical pieces live once again for today’s audiences. The volume also contains Milton’s complete shorter poems, which include such major achievements as “Lycidas,” “A Masque Presented at Ludlow Castle, 1634,” “L’Allegro,” and “Il Penseroso,” and the author’s twenty-four influential sonnets. Thoughtfully edited and carefully designed, this is an essential publication of Milton’s classic poetry. Praise for The Complete Poetry and Essential Prose of John Milton “For generations of readers Milton has been the measure of both eloquence and nobility of mind. For the next generation, this new Modern Library volume will be the standard. It brings Milton, as a poet and a thinker, vividly alive before us.”—Robert Hass, former Poet Laureate of the United States “A superb edition of the great poet, with modernized spelling, lucid introductions to each work, illuminating footnotes, and fresh prose translations in Latin, Greek, and Italian. This will surely be the edition of choice for teachers, students, and general readers too.”—Leo Damrosch, Harvard University
