Collected in one omnibus edition here are the five most important poetic works on Heaven and Hell ever written. In Paradise Lost Milton tells the story of the fall of man, which encompasses a battle that rages across Heaven between God and Satan. Here are passion and innocence, victory and defeat, hope and despair. This is without a doubt the greatest epic poem ever written in the English language. Paradise Regained is often thought of as the companion to Milton's Epic Paradise Lost. Here Milton tells the full story of Christ's forty days' temptation in the desert with Satan. The detail and emotional impact are stunning. A book for the ages. The Divine Comedy is a first person narration of Dante's travels through Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven; but at a deeper level it represents allegorically the soul's journey towards God. At this deeper level, Dante draws on medieval Christian theology and philosophy. A powerful work of art that has stood the test of time. This is the brilliant Henry Wadsworth Longfellow translation that placed Dante in his proper place in the English speaking world.
