Paradise Lost, by 17th century English Poet John Milton, “has been many things to many people-a Christian epic, a comment on the English Civil war, the epitome of Poetic ambiguity-but it is first of all a pleasure to read”, according to Phillip Pullman. As he “explores the world of Paradise Lost” he explains how sound alone builds meaning or an understanding of the life of the poem. The sound of the poem has the power to maintain the readers attention overshadowing the formalities of the structure and the composition of the poem. The connections are first made by the nature of what the poem is about , a story about devils, fallen angels and their leader, a world that readers become attracted to including the poet himself. Once you become engaged with the nature of a creative project and you emerge yourself the aesthetics become more relevant.
