Books Info:

The Connell Guide to John Milton's What is Paradise Lost about? Is Milton's handling of Satan flawed? What makes Eve finally choose wrong? Is Eve inferior to Adam? Why have so many critics misread Paradise Lost? How does Paradise Lost fit into the tradition of epic poetry? Why is the 'psychology of delay' so important in Paradise Lost? What makes Eve visit the forbidden tree? Why does Satan use height to tempt Eve? How does Milton portray the counter-human nature of evil? Milton's Paradise Lost has long been acknowledged as one of the greatest literary works in the English language. Yet while many readers have been carried away by Milton's sublimity, others have been daunted by his grandeur, scope and learning. In this brilliantly concise and scholarly book, Caroline Moore shows what makes Milton's verse so extraordinarily powerful and why many critics have misunderstood him. Paradise Lost, Moore argues, is the most profound study ever undertaken of the human act of choice. No other English poet - not even Shakespeare - has ever stared so long and hard into the abyss "between the acting of a dreadful thing / And the first motion"- no other poet has shown quite so vividly the dark byways and infinite strangeness of the human heart.
