1. Paradise Lost. Title page of the first edition (1668). John Milton (1608-1674). Publisher Samuel Simmons. 

    The epic poem concerns the Christian story of the fall of Satan and his brethren and the rise of Man: the temptation of Adam and Eve by Satan and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden.

    Book I
    Of Man’s first disobedience, and the fruit
    Of that forbidden tree whose mortal taste
    Brought death into the world, and all our woe,
    With loss of Eden, till one greater Man
    Restore us, and regain the blissful Seat,
    Lines 1-5.
