Recommended for: Every English Speaker

As difficult as it may be to swim through the older English of Paradise Lost, it is great to be able to read John Milton's original English, much like reading Shakespeare.

I love Paradise Lost because of its incredible imagery and extensive vocabulary. Milton was never one to overuse words to describe emotion and plot. But what I like most about Paradise Lost is the humanism attributed to the fall of Satin and his promise to never rest in injuring God by corrupting his favorite creation: us.
