About this ebook

Following both the adventures of Satan and the lives of Adam and Eve, this telling of key biblical stories is split into multiple books to form an epic poem. Beginning with Satan's promise to corrupt God's Earth, Milton tells the tale of how Satan entered the Garden of Eden and filled Adam and Eve's angelic existence with sin. Written in blank verse, this seventeenth-century English poem solidified Milton's reputation as one of the greatest poets of his time.
