Introduction to Paradise Lost
By Ian Johnston

Back to John Milton
In very simple terms, the plot of the epic poem Paradise Lost concerns the events that culminate in Man's expulsion from Eden, as briefly noted in Genesis. After rebelling against God and being cast out of Heaven, Satan and his fellow fallen angels seek revenge by attempting to corrupt Man.
