Content descriptions

General Note: "Complete and unabridged" --Cover.
Summary, etc.: Paradise Lost, an epic poem in blank verse, written by the 17th-century poet John Milton as he became blind at the end of his life, is a retelling of the Biblical story of the Fall of Man. While based on the Christian tale, the poem incorporates many topics, and spends most of its verses detailing the journey of Satan and his war on the angels. The depiction of Adam and Eve draws an elaborate panorama of their trials. In this edition the poem is presented with all 50 of the magnificent engravings produced by Gustav Doré specially for the work.
