Das verlorene Paradies

The struggle rages across three worlds – heaven, hell, and earth – as Satan and his band of rebel angels plot their revenge against God. At the center of the conflict are Adam and Eve, who are motivated by all too human temptations but whose ultimate downfall is unyielding love.

Marked by Milton’s characteristic erudition, Paradise Lost is a work epic both in scale and, notoriously, in ambition.

For nearly years, it has held generation upon generation of audiences in rapt attention, and its profound influence can be seen in almost every corner of Western culture. Taschenbuchpages.

Can this book be read, understood and appreciated by someone with very little to no knowledge of christianity? The story itself is complete and coherent. Glosses and footnotes can be helpful or distracting. I’d read it once straight through without …more Certainly. I’d read it once straight through without any apparatus before worrying about what you might miss. Christians with no knowledge of Greek mythology read this poem all the time without feeling as though they are missing anything.

And virtually no one who reads the poem knows all the things Milton alludes to. But that’s not an obstacle to enjoyment. See all 9 questions about Das verlorene Paradies….

Had I read this book with the perspective of a student, or perhaps even as a potential instructor, I suspect my view of the twelve-book poem would have been far more favorable.

As it was, I did not. Rather I read it as myself, a person who is rather sarcastic and critical of most things, but especially continuity errors.

I found myself stumb I hope no fan of Milton ever reads this review. I found myself stumbling not on the poetry, but on such things as the lengthy description of the pantheon of pandemonium being made with mined gold, wrought with comments on greed and how all those who look for such riches are doomed. This is impressed rather heavily, to be followed by the sun being made with gold and precious gems, heaven being full of similar wealth, and even Christ’s chariot of ‘sparkles dire’ is studded with precious stones and capped with a sapphire throne book six, line starts you off on the description of the chariot.

Were I reading this as a student, I could probably make excuses for the different standards of wealth. I could probably even attempt to justify why Adam and Eve seem to gain absolutely nothing from eating the fruit of knowledge.

Adam says often beforehand how working in the garden is good. They are told of Satan’s presence in the garden and recognize this as being something to fear. Thus, they know of good and evil. After the fruit, the only alteration is a lustful interlude, to be followed by argument over it. Another angelic intervention where they are told everything to come, and they wander away in sorrowful hope.

The Angels are thus the ones who are conveyors of knowledge, not the fruit of knowledge. And so, with Milton, it might as well be the Fruit of Lust and Damnation.

Das verlorene Paradies by John Milton (2 star ratings)

As it stands, and as I have read it, Paradise Lost was not what I would call an enjoyable work. I find no great epiphanies in it, or divine inspiration.

I find a great deal of misogyny and even more references to classical myths that, if I didn’t know it was vas fine in Pagadies time to interweave Christianity and Greco-Roman myth, I would find a bit off. In total, it read like a rather bad biblical fanfiction with heavy crossover.

That being said, Paradise Lost is still a good work to read. For even if it strains my patience and sarcasm, it also gives an excellent perspective on quite a few quotes and characterizations that were to come after. In a way, the book is less important than what people have done with it verlroene the years. View all 6 comments. I listened to the audio version. I may read it and find I enjoy it more. To sum up, in the words of Tank from the Matrix, I thought this was “major boring shit.

This was a difficult yet interesting read! It was hard to tell what was going on at times due to the language and all the references to Greek gods etc. But I did veroorene reading Daz version of the devil, he was a fascinating yet horrendous character! I’m not sure this should have been written.

Christianity doesn’t need, nor profit by, an epic poem. I’m not even sure Milton is writing what he really believes; I think he may just be playing– indulging his reverence for the classical mode.


I never had these misgivings with the Divine Comedy; Dante strikes me as completely sincere. But does Milton really believe the war in Heaven was fought with spears?

Does Hell really contain four rivers from classical mythology? I could tolerate his efforts to make my belief system look ridiculous if he compensated with some new insights. But after the Father and Son flatly quote doctrine to each other for a few pages, I was no better off.

Worse, I had pretty well lost any appreciation for the wonder and profundity of this mystery. Way to suck all the mystery out of the room, Milton! He didn’t even add rhyme. He gives a contemptuous dismissal of rhyme in his preface, but I remain equally contemptuous of his refusal to rhyme. There’s nothing “barbaric” about it, and in English the glories of meter and rhythm are weak without rhyme. If he had permitted himself any poetic devices it would have helped.

As it is, Paradise Lost is pretty difficult reading, with almost no metaphor or alliteration to lighten the task. Lest it seem I hate Milton– Nilton don’t. I liked Samson Agonistes when I read it in college many years ago. I was expecting to like Paradise Lost.

But I’m afraid he should have stuck to Old Testament flesh-and-blood stories, rather than writing of heavenly realms. View all 3 comments. Getting through this book was not very enjoyable, and I would have never done it on my own without being part of a group reading it. The one thing I can remember from the book that I thought was strange was the description of the cosmic battle between the forces of good and evil included weapons of war that reflected 15th milgon technology. It’s apparent that John Milton’s description would have included Star Wars like space ships had he lived in the 20th century.

The themes Milton wrestles with are nothing less than cosmic: This extraordinary edition, part of the Norton Critical Editions series, is like a graduate school seminar on Paradise Lost packed into a single volume.

Support materials include a biography of Milton, an overview of the religious, political, and literary trends of his time, Biblical excerpts that had the strongest influence on his poem, and critical commentary on Milton ranging from Voltaire to Virginia Woolf to Harold Bloom.

To view it, click here. Not much original thought or plot in this. Basically it’s a poetic summary of the Bible. Where Milton shines is in his descriptions of Satan of course. Here we get away from our bible blueprint and break some new ground. But, even when doing this ideas are borrowed from Greek mythology. Sin is born from a headache in Lucifer’s head. That is a retelling of Athena springing from Zeus’ noggin.
