    About John Milton


    1. John Milton was an English poet, polemicist, man of letters, and a civil servant for the Commonwealth of England under Oliver Cromwell He wrote at a time of religious flux and political upheaval, and is best known for his epic poem Paradise Lost 1667 , written in blank verse.Milton s poetry and prose reflect deep personal convictions, a passion for freedom and self determination, and the urgent issues and political turbulence of his day Writing in English, Latin, Greek, and Italian, he achieved international renown within his lifetime, and his celebrated Areopagitica 1644 written in condemnation of pre publication censorship is among history s most influential and impassioned defenses of free speech and freedom of the press.William Hayley s 1796 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 Samuel Johnson praised Paradise Lost as a poem whichwith respect to design may claim the first place, and with respect to performance, the second, among the productions of the human mind, though he a Tory and recipient of royal patronage described Milton s politics as those of an acrimonious and surly republican.Because of his republicanism, Milton has been the subject of centuries of British partisanship.

    1. in middle school i had seen this book lying around the house and for some reason it struck me as very impressive i didn t ever want to read it but i wanted to give off the impression that i was the type of person who would read it i did this with a few other books too catcher in the rye, on the road, ect i carried it to school so that teachers would see it in my possession and prominently displayed it on my bedside table to let friends and family know after actually reading the book for a brit l [...]

    2. There s all this debate over why Satan is so appealing in Paradise Lost Did Milton screw up Is he being cynical, or a double secret atheist And why is God such a dick But no one asks whether, say, Shakespeare screwed up in making Iago so much fun they just give him credit for writing an awesome villain And that s all Milton s doing Satan is tempting for us because Satan is tempting for us That s the point of Satan If Milton didn t make him as appealing as possible, he d be doing Satan a disservi [...]

    3. Portions of this book were assigned for my Brit Lit class I read about half of the assigned portions I was distracted at the time by various events in life and wasn t yet a very good student My professor had done his PhD work on Milton and taught with a contagious passion So much passion that I decided, after the discussion was over, to buy the whole book During our five day Fall break in my sopho year I sat on the front lawn of my college and read Paradise Lost Nonstop, getting up for meals and [...]

    4. When I think of Milton s epic poem about Satan and his fall from grace, I most frequently think of two anecdotes apart from the actual work, brilliant and a foundation of modern literature as it is.First, I recall the scene from Animal House, when Donald Sutherland begins a smarmy, condescendingly pretentious question to his class about Milton s intentions for introducing Satan as such an interesting character, punctuating the delivery with a crisp bite of his apple As the bell rings and the cla [...]

    5. Fuck your misogyny Fuck your scorning Greek gods as false gods, then using its mythology left and right as metaphors Fuck your punishing the serpent when You knew it was possessed by Satan Fuck Ah, forget it.

    6. Milton wrote this while blind, and claimed it was the result of divine inspiration which visited him nightly There are few texts that could reasonably be added into the Bible, and this is certainly one of them the Divine Comedy is another Paradise Lost outlines portions of the Bible which, thanks to its haphazard combination of mythic stories, are never fully explored In fact, most of Paradise Lost has become tacitly accepted into the Christian mythos, even if most Christians do not recognize it [...]

    7. What does the word Paradise signifies to a human being Is it the state of blissfulness which one acknowledges in life owing to the absence of all fears as can be experienced in this dwelling place of ours Or is it an actual place somewhere in heaven which is the ultimate goal that humans wish to achieve As a child, I had a profound belief in the idea of God and heaven too Yes, and perhaps the reason I wished to believe in him was the fact that world seemed a beautiful place, a place where everyt [...]

    9. Book Review3.5 out of 5 stars for Paradise Lost, the first of a two book series, written in 1667 by John Milton I ve only read the first book in this series, but would like to read the second piece at some point These are epic poems telling of the battle between Satan and God for control over the human soul It s truly an introspective piece, as I believe Milton threw so much of himself, as well as people in general, into this work It s captured the attention of so many people, and not just reade [...]

    12. Who but a blind man could so vividly write of the darkness of Hell Paradise Lost is fire and passion It is the pinnacle and the bottomless pit It is the struggle for all that is good It is the struggle within the evil of all evils.In the mid 1600s John Milton, aging and gone blind, dictated his most famous work, Paradise Lost, an epic poem that harkens back to Homer and Virgil It not only tells the so very well known story of Adam and Eve, it also describes the downfall of Satan in dramatic fash [...]

    16. I still have my old grad school copy of this work, earnestly annotated with references to Ovid and Homer and once Terminator 2 But through all that Milton s words shine forth, depicting the struggle between good and evil, which is a struggle precisely because Satan is so alluring and interesting by far the most interesting character here, which of course didn t escape the notice of later Romantic writers who were themselves drawn to the anti hero But the struggle isn t just between mythic forces [...]

    17. Let s face it, John Milton was a closet devil worshiper Satan here is presented so sympathetically it s hard to think otherwise He has the best lines, and even his actions would be laudable by most Christian standards excepting, of course, starting a war in heaven He never gives up, he fights for what he believes in, he s really clever, and he even pities humans for having to be his tools to get back at God The good angels come off as such sissies and are always really smug and self satisfied an [...]

    18. I hope no fan of Milton ever reads this review And if you are a fan of Milton, go find one of many other reviews that will be a little better to your liking.Had I read this book with the perspective of a student, or perhaps even as a potential instructor, I suspect my view of the twelve book poem would have been far favorable As it was, I did not Rather I read it as myself, a person who is rather sarcastic and critical of most things, but especially continuity errors.I found myself stumbling no [...]

    20. WOW I had never read Milton until I was forced to in my Chaucer Shakespeare Milton class and I was blown away I absolutely loved this epic poem Milton was the best educated man in England at this time He spoke or read every European language and even dabbled in Algonquin He was part of the Cromwell government and wrote a lot of political tracts that contain the roots of much of the political philosophy that is the foundation of our country In a scathing political pamphlet called The Tenure of Ki [...]

    21. No Idea why this part gets me every damn time O, for that warning voice, which he, who saw The Apocalypse, heard cry in Heaven aloud , Then when the Dragon, put to second rout , Came furious down to be revenged on men , Woe to the inhabitants on earth that now , While time was, our first parents had been warned The coming of their secret foe, and scaped , Haply so scaped his mortal snare For now Satan, now first inflamed with rage, came down , The tempter ere the accuser of mankind , To wreak on [...]

    22. Otra vez creo que he pecado de elegir la versi n largu sima, pero es un hermoso relato Este tipo de narraci n era la que esperaba encontrar cuando me decid a leer The History of the Devil As Well Ancient as Modern In Two Parts de Daniel Defoe, pero que no le llega ni a los talones a esta obra.Recomendada s lo para aquellos que disfrutan de una obra detallada, rica en di logos y estrechamente vinculada a la historia b blica.

    23. Milton s epic tale of the fall and redemption of humanity18 September 2011 With the exception of Shakespeare this, I believe, is the greatest work of English Literature Paradise Lost tells the story, in epic poetic form, of the fall of mankind as outlined in Genesis 1 3 While the story is constricted to the opening chapters of the Bible, the scope of the story itself is much wider and encompasses all of human history at least up until the death and resurrection of Christ In fact, it is the death [...]

    24. A grand sprawling epic I can t possibly say anything good about it that has not already been repeated I am fortunate enough to have a brand new edition with lots of annotations and references Layers upon layers of allegory and myth and history and religion and fable Deserves infinite rereadings.

    25. This horror will grow mild, this darkness light I didn t intially love this book, but I liked it We had to read a few chapters for uni, and I remember wanting to read all of it, despite not understanding it particularly well Something about it drew me in, so when it came time to pick books for our exam I picked this one along with three others It was a chance to delve into it, to break it open and peer into the cracks, to reach a deeper understanding of it I don t think I expected to love it But [...]

    26. Paradise Lost builds upon a tradition of epic poetry begun with the work of Homer s The Iliad and The Odyssey I have held back from fully reviewing this work for a while but I feel that I can at least provide a decent review at this stage.I first read Paradise Lost when one of my teachers recommended it during a devotional session at school I knew nothing about the work prior to this mention, but being the dedicated reader that I am I knew any book recommended by a teacher as being for me would [...]

    27. I have wonder about how much Milton s marriage led to his portrayal of Eve I have read that while he was writing, Paradise Lost he was going through a very turbulent divorce with his wife, and in a way was punishing her through Eve I believe that you also can see the true love hate relationship Milton must have had with his wife, through Eve How Eve is responsible for the fall of man, yet he shows her as a loving person as well I always got the feeling that he could never quite make up his mind [...]
