This illustrated version of the poem contains Dorés fantastic engravings alongside the represented section of text. Richly detailed and highly imaginative, this collection shows all the epic grandeur of the original, and contains images of Adam and Eve, angels, devils, creatures, and all the traditional backgrounds to Biblical scenes.
Each full page engraving is accompanied by the key part of Milton's text. 
Scenes include:
"Hell at last,  / Yawning, received them whole" - fallen angels crashing downwards with thunderbolts and clouds.
The serpent approaching Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden - "Nearer he drew, and many a walk traversed".
"They heard and from his presence hid themselves.." - Adam and Eve hiding from judgement. 
- and many more dramatic imaginings of Milton's epic.
