Milton‚Äö√Ñ‚àû_s magnificent poem narrating Adam and Eve‚Äö√Ñ‚àû_s expulsion from the Garden of Eden, now in a beautiful new clothbound edition‚àö‚Ä¢‚àö√§In‚àö‚Ä¢‚àö√§Paradise Lost, Milton produced a poem of epic scale, conjuring up a vast, awe-inspiring cosmos ranging across huge tracts of space and time. And yet, in putting a charismatic Satan and naked Adam and Eve at the center of this story, he also created an intensely human tragedy on the Fall of Man. Written when Milton was in his fifties‚Äö√Ñ‚àû‚àö√µ‚àö√¨blind, bitterly disappointed by the Restoration, and briefly in danger of execution‚Äö√Ñ‚àû‚àö√µ‚àö√¨Paradise Lost‚Äö√Ñ‚àû_s apparent ambivalence toward authority has led to intense debate about whether it manages to ‚Äö√Ñ‚àû‚àö√µ‚àö√®justify the ways of God to men,‚Äö√Ñ‚àû_ or exposes the cruelty of Christianity.
