Milton's epic poem has beautiful cadence throughout his work. It is a very interesting retelling of Genesis with some embellishment and imagination as he examines conversations surrounding creation, the fall of man, and the plan for redemption. I was surprised at how much mythology he incorporated into the script. It is an impressive piece of work especially considering the fact that he became blind prior to writing it. The theology is off in places, but overall it was a good read.
