Milton realized this dream with his graceful, sonorous &&LI&&RParadise Lost&&L/I&&R, now considered the most influential epic poem in English literature.&&L/P&&R&&LP style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"&&R &&L/P&&RA retelling of the biblical story of mankind's fall from grace, Milton's epic opens shortly after the dramatic expulsion of Satan and his army of angels from Heaven. What follows is a cosmic battle between good and evil that ranges across vast, splendid tracts of time and space, from the wild abyss of Chaos and the fiery lake of Hell to the Gate of Heaven and God's newly created paradise, the Garden of Eden. Controversy still swirls around Milton's magnificent and sympathetic characterization of Satan, a portrait so compelling that many critics have maintained that he is the true hero of the story.&&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R &&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LB&&RDavid Hawkes&&L/B&&R is Associate Professor of English at Lehigh University.
