John Milton was an English writer and philosopher, one of the most famous English writer ever lived, along with Shakespeare.
“Paradise Lost” is his masterpiece and it was published in its first version in 1667 in 10 volumes when he was already blind and poor. "Areopagitica" instead is his well-known prose work in which he wrote with conviction about the freedom of print without having political or religious oppressions and censorships.

Paradise Lost tells the biblical legend of the Fall of Man, the temptation of Satan to Adam & Eve and their banishing from the Eden. It was written in blank verses.
The main protagonist is Satan, the Fallen Angel. Milton represents Satan as a very ambitious being, very proud of himself, to a point that he challenges the Almighty God itself, his creator, starting a war against the Paradise, but he was defeated and confined into the Earth. William Blake, great fan of Milton, was the one that illustrated the entire poem. He said about Milton that "he was a real poet, and he was on Satan's side without knowing it".
