Summary
A prose retelling of John Milton's narrative poem chronicling the war in heaven between competing angels and how the disobedience of Adam and Eve led to their expulsion from the Garden of Eden. Long, long ago, before the world was, before minutes ticked and seconds tocked, before beginnings had endings, there was a war in Heaven. In 1656 a great poet begins a new work. Because, at this stage of his life, he is completely blind, he dictates the verses to his daughter, Deborah. It is a monumental work, a magnificent epic of good and evil, a richly inventive narrative that is audacious in its scope and splendor. It is the masterpiece we know as Paradise Lost. Now another poet, Newbery Award winner Nancy Willard, retells Milton's astonishing poem in a prose adaptation that faithfully captures his vivid imagery and cinematic flourish. Thrilling, gorgeous, suspenseful, and yes, even funny -- here is the tale of Lucifer's rebellion, the war between Heaven and Hell, the creation of the world, and the temptation and fall of Adam and Eve. Here is the tale of Paradise Lost in a beautifully illustrated edition that will introduce the glory of Milton's achievement to a new generation of readers
