John Milton made an epic ballad not at all like some other. He made the ballad while going visually impaired, and recounted it completely, after he went totally visually impaired, for his girls to record. Heaven Lost is ostensibly the best epic sonnet at any point composed, however not the most understood. It is so extraordinary in light of the fact that it is so present day. Different sagas, for example, The Iliad or The Odyssey composed by Homer are lyrics of the past. They consolidate a religion that is never again taken after, and are something of sci-fi today. Milton’s Paradise Lost depends on Christian Theology, and contains, what many trust, a saint that ought not be viewed as a legend by any stretch of the imagination. Milton places Satan as the epic saint in his epic ballad. Satan is the fundamental character, and the peruser sees the majority of the tale of Paradise Lost through Satan’s eyes. Satan is an exceptional character, as he continually shows clashing feelings about being constrained into Hell; his inspirations all through the ballad give him a few characteristics, as found in lines 242-270 of Book 1, that customary epic saints have, yet there are likewise qualities that make Satan not at all like some other epic legend composed.
