Topic - John Milton
Few would argue that John Milton's long poem "Paradise Lost" is one of the pinnacles of achievement in the centuries-long tradition of English literature. Not only is it THE English epic, worthy of comparison with its great classical predecessors, the Greek "Odyssey" and "Iliad" and the Latin "Aeneid," but its subject, Adam and Eve's fall from grace in the Garden of Eden, was to resonate down through the centuries, providing the underlying theme for so many poems, plays and novels.
In 'Paradise Lost,' Milton often writes as the unabashed poet of paradisal eroticism."
