Paradise Lost is the first epic of English literature written in the classical style. John Milton saw himself as the intellectual heir of Homer, Virgil, and Dante, and sought to create a work of art which fully represented the most basic tenets of the Protestant faith. His work, which was dictated from memory and transcribed by his daughter, remains as one of the most powerful English poems. (Summary by Caeristhiona)

This is a recording of the text of Milton’s first edition of 1667, which had ten books, unlike the second edition (1674) which was redivided into twelve books in the manner of Virgil’s Aeneid. See Wikipedia entry. (9 hr 41 min)

Wow!- Paradise Lost- just awesome

(5 Sterne)

This book is just fantastic. I've never read anything better, and although the narration is slow at points, it is almost flawless, with the voice actor going to great lengths to change voices to differentiate characters. Well done!

a good attempt at describing the account of the fall of our firs
