In his epic work, Paradise Lost, John Milton seeks 'to justify the ways of God to men' through the familiar Christian myth of the fall from grace. Since its creation Paradise Lost has provided inspiration for generations of writers, from the Romantic poets to Tolkien and Philip Pullman in his Dark Materials trilogy. First published in 1667, Milton's awe-inspiring epic poem is considered by many to be the greatest in the English language. Countless generations of ordinary readers have had their understanding of the darker side of the human soul illuminated by this remarkable work, and it continues to gain new admirers today. Featuring 50 magnificent engravings by Gustave Doré specially produced to accompany this poem, this special edition is presented in hardback complete with deluxe collectors' edition slipcase.

About the Author:

John Milton was born into a middle-class family in 1608. He was a poet and man of letters who got involved in the radical politics of his time. He championed the cause of the Puritans and Oliver Cromwell and served in Cromwell's government. In 1651 he went blind. When Charles II was restored to the throne of England in 1660, Milton was arrested but he was soon released to live the rest of his life in seclusion, where he was able to create some of his greatest work.
