This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I’m not answering comments on this review anymore because I find that I have to constantly repeat myself. If you feel the need to point out Paradise Lost is a classic and was written during an era when women had few rights, please refer to the comment section. The word review that launched a thousand paradis 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. View all 46 comments. The world of art and literature is filled with misogyny and sexism. Sabrina Honestly, sis, what were you expecting??? It was the seventeenth century! Yes, the dynamic of Adam and Eve can come off as misogynistic, but Milton is Honestly, sis, what were you expecting??? Yes, the dynamic of Adam and Eve can come off as misogynistic, but Milton is just following A the social norm and B following his religious beliefs.
Someone who is allegedly as educated in the classic genre as you are should probably be used to the whole idea of women being objects, no? And for whoever said Milton was just a fanboy of the Bible– isn’t religion just a fandom for whatever holy text they have?? And of course he both denounced Greek deities and then made allusions towards them, but again, someone as smart as you should understand that everyone was reading tales of Greek gods and heros, if they could, because that was the big thing– Milton knew his audience.
The piece can be seen many ways, with some theorizing that it is a political piece about the monarchy, other’s saying that Satan and God were lovers. I hope you maybe revisit it sometimes, and be sure to consider other points of view.
Quite frankly I don’t quite understand why you don’t enjoy it, and i’d love to hear why, if you’re willing. Of course, you are entitled to your opinion, and I’m not trying to be rude or insult your intellect. I’m just a kid lol I can imagine folks reading this and enjoying it. The story lying at the heart of Paradise Lost was one I really wanted to read. Some of the subplots here have become recurrent and mythic elements in literature ever since. I knew, for example, th I can imagine folks reading this and enjoying it.
The names of the fallen angels are resonant, too. Unfortunately, the book is a chore and a bore. The whole thing is written in blank verse, which puts a stranglehold on composition.
Milton wants to cram more erudition into this absurdly long poem than it really needs. So he tosses in references to stuff that have nothing to do with the story. The bottom of each page is full of footnotes explaining what these words mean, and almost all of them are worse than useless, since they distract from the flow of the text dqs, recall, is already burdened by that meter.
The early portions that deal with Satan were barely tolerable, but as soon as Milton moves on to God and Jesus it gets really, really dull. 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. The commentary was more interesting than the book itself. Did anyone ever do a graphic novel version of this?
That would be a perfect version. Frank Millerwhere are you? View all 11 comments. I just can’t do it. But I’m giving myself the benefit of the doubt and marking as read because this is verlogene damn feat, even if it’s just getting to book four. I totally appreciate what Milton is doing here and it’s really fucking clever just I just can’t. I’m not saying verlorehe ‘bad’ literature it definitely should be studied but I just can’t finish it.

The first time I tried it, I was still in high school. I was watching Supernatural and wanted to read this since, you know, it’s a classic and also one that takes an intimate look at Adam and Eve’s fall from grace, or how the Christians interpret Genesis.
So, I started reading it. I don’t remember what happened, but I had fallen asleep and it was suddenly 10PM, not 5PM as it had been when I started reading. Paradise Lost joined a very narrow group of books. The ones that literally put me to sleep. I don’t know what I was hoping for with this second attempt. Maybe being older and regularly reading Shakespeare would have given me a leg up, but no.
The language was so flowery. One reason why I don’t like most poetry. And, it just made no sense. Also, I know they had quotation marks back then, but did not use them at all. It was a jumbled mess of interweaving dialogue and purple prose. What I feel I was hopping for was some insight into Lucifer. I mean, I love Supernatural’s take on him.
Just a beloved child who could not believe that his father loved some lower creature more than his own children who were in Heaven with daz. And, that love made him rebel. I think the quote that came closest to it was this: As he our Darkness, cannot we his Verlirene Imitate when we please?
Basically, God uses the darkness to punish those who displease him, something Lucifer and his ilk use as well, so why shouldn’t they use his good as well? A very packed quote, but whatever. My brain hurt and it’s 9AM. I shouldn’t be about to fall asleep when my whole day’s ahead of me. It’s not you, Milton. I will wait to write a review for this until I have the proper amount of time to insult it.
