1852 Paradise Lost by John Milton Poetry English Boyd RARE John Martin ART



“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.”

― John Milton, Paradise Lost



Paradise Lost follows the biblical story of the Fall of Man and the temptation of Adam and Eve. Milton himself states that purpose for this book was to “Justify the ways of God to Men”. It covers the characters Adam, Eve, and Satan and the roles each played in the development of religious culture and idolatry.



It was critically acclaimed and well-received by many famed personalities, including Samuel Johnson who states.

“[Paradise Lost shows] Miltons peculiar power to astonish…and he seems to have been well acquainted with his own genius, and to know what it was the Nature had bestowed upon him more bountifully than upon others: the power of displaying the vast, illuminating the splendid, enforcing the awful, darkening the gloomy, and aggravating the dreadful.



This 1852 American edition includes commentary and explanatory notes by James Boyd and exquisite illustrations by John Martin.
