Paradise Regained is a poem by the 17th century English poet John Milton, published in 1671. It is connected by name to his earlier and more famous epic poem Paradise Lost, with which it shares similar theological themes. Based on the Gospel of Luke's version of the Temptation of Christ, Paradise Regained is more thoughtful in writing style, and thrives upon the imagery of Jesus' perfection in contrast to the shame of Satan.

Reviews

(4 stars)

Not as good or as Michael Bay as Paradise Lost, but a decent listen if you can keep up with the language

Good book/ good readers

(4 stars)

I found the readers to be good and the book to be good but did feel much shorter than the first book Paradise Lost.
