Paradise Lost Book 9 Summary by John Milton - Read this article to know about Paradise Lost Book 9 Summary by John Milton. Book 9 of Paradise Lost by Milton deals with the most significant issue of impending fall of man from Heaven due to his disobedience to God. The poem narrates the entire incident of Adam and Eve falling into the evil temptation of Satan.   Book II is undoubtedly one of the great literary achievements of Milton and, in my view, probably the greatest literary achievement of Milton in the whole of Paradise Lost. The book can be broken into two movements. The first movement is the speeches of Moloch, Belial, Mammon, and Beelzebub in Pandaemonium. The speeches are wonderfully crafted.

Paradise Lost is the first epic of English literature written in the classical style. John Milton saw himself as the intellectual heir of Homer, Virgil, and Dante, and sought to create a work of art which fully represented the most basic tenets of the Protestant faith.   It is a laborious read, but John Milton's Paradise Lost is worth it. First published in , Paradise Lost remains, many contend, the greatest poem ever published in English, and Milton is deemed second only to Shakespeare among the pantheon of English writers/5(6).
