Gustave Doré’s Romantic style of illustration, supremely imaginative and richly detailed, was ideally suited to literary subjects. His wood-engraved illustrations for John Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost, recounting mankind’s fall from the grace of God through the work of Satan, were among his finest and most dramatic works.

This volume presents superb reproductions of all 50 plates drawn by Doré and engraved in his studios for the original edition of Paradise Lost.

Appropriate quotes from the text of Paradise Lost are printed alongside each illustration.
