Paradise Regained

John Milton

Book Overview: 

Paradise Regained is a poem by the 17th century English poet John Milton. It is connected by name to his earlier and more famous epic poem Paradise Lost, with which it shares similar theological themes. Based on the Gospel of Luke’s version of the Temptation of Christ, Paradise Regained is more thoughtful in writing style, and thrives upon the imagery of Jesus’ perfection in contrast to the shame of Satan.

  Nearer acquainted, now I feel by proof 400
  That fellowship in pain divides not smart,

  Small consolation, then, were Man adjoined.
  This wounds me most (what can it less?) that Man,
  Man fallen, shall be restored, I never more."

Uno spettacolare poema sul peccato, la tentazione e la libertà nella rivisitazione di due episodi biblici: Adamo ed Eva e le tentazioni di Cristo.

Like Dante: great literature, terrible theology.
I can see why everyone says Satan is the most interesting character. I was rather disappointed when he drops out of the story halfway through.
The passages about Eve's special susceptibility to sin particularly infuriated me. As if Adam wasn't just as v
