5.0 out of 5 stars Great shelf edition!, January 6, 2014
This review is from: Paradise Lost (Hardcover)
Admittedly, I don't read out of this version. I've read the story multiple times, but this edition is more of a decoration for house guests and visitors to appreciate. Every once in a long while I will look up a quote from this copy, but to hold it and read the whole of the text would be awkward due to the size and shape of the book. The artwork and large print make the this an excellent purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavenly Love and Hellish Hate, July 20, 2014
This review is from: Paradise Lost (Hardcover)
Written in 1667 Paradise Lost is an epic poem depicting the events of the Bible with an emphasis on Genesis Chapters Two and Three. The following is a list of events included in the narrative: God casting a prideful and arrogant Satan with one-third of the angels out of heaven, the creation of Adam and Eve, the deception of the serpent, the disobedience of Adam and Eve, and their subsequent removal from the Garden of Eden. The Son of God and the archangels Gabriel and Michael play major roles in the story. God's grace, wisdom, and love and Satan's pride, arrogance, and ambition are the major themes of this work. I will admit that this is not easy reading and I really had to focus to understand what was taking place in the narrative. Still, I did like this book a great deal with its rich vocabulary, vivid imagery, and many references to Near Eastern mythology, Egyptian mythology, Greek and Roman mythology, the Bible, and classical literature.
