  Paradise Lost - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Paradise Lost (1667) is an epic poem by the 17th century English poet John Milton.
His pure reason and intellect are lost as a result of the fall, Man never being able again to converse with angels as near-equal (as he did with Raphael) but forever one-sided (as he did with Michael after the fall).
The analogy Milton makes in Paradise Lost is one of light: God is like the sun, the essence of light, while the Son is like the rays of the sun, an "effluence" of light.

The brilliant movement, imagery and scope; that can hypnotise an atheist and set Christian critics at loggerheads; is all part of the grand debate, in which several voices argue their points and logic finally reveals the truth.

The arguments about Paradise Lost commonly begin by focusing on two aspects of the poem: first, the poetic style and, second, the handling of the story (including the nature of the main characters and the development of doctrine).

 Paradise Lost Study Guide / Paradise Lost Summary
Milton begins his epic poem Paradise Lost with an invocation to a muse.
He does this for two reasons: he believes the muse will help him write, and invoking a muse is a convention of epic poems such as Homer's Iliad and Virgil's Aeneid.

 Paradise Lost by John Milton: A searchable online version at The Literature Network
Considered by many scholars to be one of the greatest poems of the English language, Paradise Lost tells the biblical story of the fall from grace of Adam and Eve (and, by extension, all humanity) in language that is a supreme achievement of rhythm and sound.
Many other works of art have been inspired by Paradise Lost, notably Joseph Haydn's oratorio "The Creation" (1798) and John Keats's long poem "Endymion." Milton wrote a companion piece, Paradise Regained, in 1671, which dramatizes the temptation of Christ.

 Uxoriousness, Genesis, and John Milton's Paradise Lost   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
In Paradise Lost, however, Milton adds details to the Genesis account that undercut the implied equality of Adam and Eve and emphasize Adam's uxoriousness, which is a sin precisely because the woman to whom he devotes himself is inferior.
Although he consents in Paradise Lost that in both man and woman shines "[t]he image of their glorious maker" (4.292), Milton makes it clear that Eve "resemble[s] less / His image who made both" (8.543-4; emphasis added).
In Genesis, the only hint of uxoriousness lies in God's condemnation of Adam as one who has "harkened unto the voice of [his] wife"; the main emphasis, however, is on the fact that Adam has "eaten of the tree, of which [God] commanded [him], saying, Thou shalt not eat" (3.17).

 BNR Metal Pages -- Paradise Lost   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Paradise Lost is generally regarded as one of the founders of the the genre of metal known as doomdeath, mixing the raw vocal style of death metal and slowing the riffs down to doom metal speed.
As with many doomdeath bands, however, the succeeding albums have moved steadily away from that style, gradually losing the death vocals and instead opting for a more melancholy, slighty goth-influenced mainstream sound, losing almost all metallic ties on albums such as Host and Believe In Nothing.
Since then, they've reverted slightly, with Symbol Of Life and the recent Paradise Lost containing a few nods to their mid-period days.
