Paradise Lost

by John Milton

I studied Book 9 for A Level and then the whole at degree level. I agree with everything Michael Steen says. This is brilliant, thought provoking, passionate and sometimes heartbreaking poetry. Satan is definitely the most compelling character, but I do love Raphael too, especially in Book 4 when he comes to warn Adam and Eve. (In fact I love it so much have quoted it in my latest book). PL should be required reading. It may feel like a bit of a struggle to get through, but definitely worth it.

Author of the Day

Alexander McNabb
When Alexander McNabb stopped smoking, he had to find something constructive to do with his hands - so he started writing. His debut novel Olives - A Violent Romance, sparked a lot of controversy in the Middle East because of his use of common family names and because it contained themes such as drinking alcohol, sex before marriage etc. So he followed it with Beirut, in which there’s booze aplenty, sex, gambling, murder, violence and general mayhem. As our Author of the Day, McNabb chats about his love for the Middle East, why his books always deal with politics, democratic values and religion and reveals what music he listens to while writing.
