Paradise Lost' is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English poet John Milton. It was first published in the year 1667. The poem concerns the Biblical story of the Fall of Man: the temptation of Adam and Eve by the fallen angel Satan and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden. Milton's purpose, stated in Book I, is to "justify the ways of God to men".
... Man by him seduc't, but on himself Treble confusion, wrath and vengeance
pour'd. Forthwith upright he rears from off the Pool His mighty Stature; on each
hand the flames Drivn backward slope their pointing spires, & rowld In billows,

Scepter'd Angels held thir residence, And sat as Princes, whom the supreme ...
on a Throne of Royal State, which far Outshon the wealth of ORMUS and of IND,
Or where the gorgeous East with richest hand Showrs on her Kings BARBARIC
Pearl & Gold, Satan exalted sat, by merit rais'd To that bad eminence; and from ...
What if the breath that kindl'd those grim fires Awak'd should blow them into
sevenfold rage And plunge us in the Flames? or from above Should intermitted
vengeance Arme again His red right hand to plague us? what if all Her stores
... Hell fire To waste his whole Creation, or possess All as our own, and drive as
we were driven, The punie habitants, or if not drive, Seduce them to our Party,
that thir God May prove thir foe, and with repenting hand Abolish his own works.
