Bought the book for a pound back in and, my oh my, there’s a reason it’s taken me seventeen years to get around to reading it. I can’t even describe how much I hated this. John Milton was an English poet, polemicist, man of letters, and a civil servant for the Commonwealth of England under Oliver Cromwell.
John Milton’s Paradise Lost is one of the greatest epic poems in the English language. Ignatz Award Nominee for Outstanding Artist As he our Darkness, cannot we his Light Imitate when we please?
Instead of the Furies in their revenge-chaos being quelled by the social-cosmic Justice of love, law, and forgiveness as bestowed by Athena, goddess of Wisdom in Aeschylus’ Orestian trilogyevils are to eas regulated by self-referential inward looking conscience. Theology aside, how could so many people have sat through it – and enjoyed the experience?! Writing in English, Latin, Greek, and Italian, he achieved international renown within his lifetime, and his celebrated Areopagitica —written in condemnation of pre-publication censorship—is among history’s most influential and impassioned defenses of free speech and freedom of the press.
For nearly years, it has held generation upon generation of audiences in rapt attention, and its profound influence can be seen in almost every corner of Western culture. Satan and his colleagues have just been thrown out of heaven; The enormously superior Power is quite clear; all the bluster is meaningless.
I struggled, I put it down, I picked it up again, and I struggled some more, then I repeated this cycle because something, somewhere obscure and deep and probably anachronistic inside of me, told me that this was a classic, worthy of completion, of respect, and of, well, struggle. If it was just allowed to be a historical work, something very much a product of it’s time, but a great read if you’re into Bible fanfiction, I would have no problem with it.

Every word either one of these says has to be applauded by the angelic choir, who apparently have nothing better to do than to tell God has brilliant he is.
Well, to today’s readers it would definitely seem so 12 long books! It’s just not for me. Yes, the dynamic of Adam and Eve can come off as misogynistic, but Milton is Honestly, sis, what were you expecting??? Honestly I don’t anything should have happened to Adam only for the simple fact that he only was following his heart in a way.
Did I say undefined? Also the people saying that Adam and Eve knew what was good and evil in the garden are mistaken.

Reading it now, I found it very misogynistic. I studied this for English Literature. It is downright offensive, especially to women, who are mllton described as weak, made for the purpose of serving men, and source of all evil. This is no Aeneid, I’ll tell you what. Evil is stupid, but not this stupid. I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle?

Were I reading this as a student, I could probably make excuses for the different standards of wealth. Johnson seems to say he was incapable of simple direct statement, but always prone to verbosity. I knew going into this that I probably was not going to be a big fan of this book, but having heard about it off and on for years, I decided to tackle it after getting a free copy. All my life I have only heard this story from one point of view so to hear it from a different way defiantly makes me question what the real story is.
But I did enjoy reading Milton’s version of the devil, he was a miltom yet horrendous character! Indeed, the only thing I can think of in its favour is that it was a free download I can imagine folks reading this and enjoying it.

It’s apparent that John Milton’s description would have included Star Wars like space ships had he lived in the 20th century. Christianity doesn’t need, nor profit by, an epic poem. I’d read it once straight through without …more Certainly. Two of the most characteristic symptoms of the disease are lack of empathy and a kind of grandiose, prolix speech.
William Hayley’s biography called him the “greatest English author,” and he remains generally regarded “as one of the preeminent writers in the English language,” though critical reception has oscillated in the centuries since his death often on account of his republicanism. I finally have finished it, it felt like forever I have been reading this. Also, the assumptions he makes that are not in the bible are definitely questionable.
But it just leaves me with a whole lot of more questions. Dear God, the misogyny! But Milton takes the prize home. From what I can discern, this is an iambic pentameter th If I’ve been quiet for the last few months, it was because of John Bloody Milton. But in a lot of Christian circles it’s treated practically like another book of the Bible.
I cant tell u how many times I yelled parasies tf up adam! Fuck your scorning Greek gods as false gods, then using its mythology left and right as metaphors. Refresh and try again. The artist in either case is one who knows how to combine the two into a coherent whole.
I knew, for example, th I can imagine folks reading this and enjoying it. I found myself stumb I hope no fan of Milton parzdies reads this review.
