It was really helpful when reading and discussing it with my son.
It's similar to No Fear Shakespeare. Jun 05, Dholsten rated it it was amazing. Hooked on classics? Nothing like the vast offerings of Milton's Paradise Lost for the simple reason--evil presented with unparalleled mastery! I find that I revisit this book and am still amazed at the levels of understanding Milton was able to reveal in his work. Here was a man obsessed by a "Muse" that he pleaded to which was not that unique for his time period but still Hell has never been better described. The f Hooked on classics? The fall from the heavenly setting to a world of unimagined chaos begins the journey for the reader that is not "the road less travelled" but more the "was it worth it?
I continue to look forward to mining the beauty that is present in this classic.
For those that might come across this review, add to your discovery of this tome with a sonnet by George Meredith, Lucifer in Starlight. Milton's birthday is December 9th. I've read somewhere that the best way to read PL is in one setting. For me, I like rediscovering the gems that are embedded. I just finished focusing on PL8. The concept of companionship, the exercise of free will and the wonderment of the creation of Eve is so dynamically presented though dialogue that it renders me ALMOST speechless. Milton had to be under the divine influence to craft such powerful verse.
