Description

"Paradise Lost". In addition to its imaginative use of language, the poem features a powerful and sympathetic portrait of Lucifer, the rebel angel who frequently outshines his moral superiors. With Milton's deft use of irony, the devil makes evil appear good, just as satanic practices may seem attractive at first glance. "Paradise Lost" has exercised enormous influence on generations of artists and their works, ranging from the Romantic poets William Blake and Percy Bysshe Shelley to Joseph Haydn's oratorio "The Creation" and J. R. R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings".

  • Testimony of Jesus Christ

    This beautifully written epic gives great testimony to and perspective of the important centrality of Jesus Christ as the Redeemer of mankind from death and as the Savior from sin on conditions of faith in Him and repentance and obedience through His grace. This was definitely an uplifting and strengthening retelling, especially the tenth (last) section.

    This version was obviously made with an OCR program and not edited. The other free version with the beige cover is the Gutenberg Project version.
