Paradise lost by John Milton( Sound Recording )

It is a tale of immense drama and excitement, of rebellion and treachery, of innocence pitted against corruption, in which God and Satan fight a bitter battle for control of mankind's destiny.

At the center of the conflict are Adam and Eve, motivated by all too human temptations, but whose ultimate downfall is unyielding love
