The poem narrates the great story of ‘Adam and Eve’ in language that is an excellent achievement of rhythm and sound. He has been named as one of the greatest English poets of his time.
The main characters of the poem were God, Lucifer (Satan), Adam and Eve. Many things have been written about John Milton’s powerful and sympathetic characterization of ‘Lucifer’ (Satan). Milton scholar John Leonard interpreted the non-pious war between Heaven and Hell as Civil War.
