Lost is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English
poet John Milton. It was originally published in 1667 (though
written nearly ten years earlier) in ten books, with a total of
over ten thousand individual lines of verse. A second edition
followed in 1674, redivided into twelve books (in the manner of the
division of Virgil's Aeneid) with minor revisions throughout and a
note on the versification; most of the poem was written while
Milton was blind, and was transcribed for him. The poem concerns
the Christian story of the Fall of Man: the temptation of Adam and
Eve by the fallen angel Satan and their expulsion from the Garden
of Eden. Milton's purpose, stated in Book I, is to "justify the
ways of God to men" and elucidate the conflict between God's
eternal foresight and free will. Although the primary event in the
epic is about the Fall of Man, the character Satan serves as an
anti-hero and as a prominent driving force in the plot. His
