Review: Paradise Lost

Crítica de los usuarios  - Karen Armstrong - Goodreads

I love Milton. He's such a crazy awesome rebel dude with an ego the size of east Texas. Paradise Lost is a blast to read because of this, and so much fun to dissect. I recommend it to anyone who likes Christian mythology. Leer comentario completo
