(From the publisher):
Here in one volume are the complete texts of two of the great epic poems of our language. The first, Paradise Lost, narrates the revolt of Satan and his banishment from Heaven, and the fall of man and his expulsion from Eden. The second, Paradise Regained, explores man's regaining of grace through the sacrifice of Christ. Writing in blank verse of unsurpassed majesty, Milton here displays his genius for imagery and cadence, animating his profound search for religious truth. The struggle between Satan and God, between rebellion and authority, between human pride and submission, charge the core of this spiritual drama in which the poet's own final attitude emerges as a deeply ambivalent one. Milton's stated object in writing Paradise Lost was the "justify the ways of God to men"; but one of its enduring sources of interest is the pertinacity with which Milton questions these ways.
