Publisher's Summary

The highly-acclaimed BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of Milton's epic poem telling the story of the fall of man and also its sequel, Paradise Regained.
Out of chaos shall come order and out of darkness shall come light. Paradise is lost - and then regained.
John Milton's epic, biblically-inspired poems are wonderfully dramatised for BBC Radio starring Denis Quilley as Milton, Ian McDiarmid as Satan and Robert Glenister as Christ, enhanced by specially composed music.
First published in 1667, Paradise Lost describes Satan's plot to ruin God's new and most favoured creation, Mankind, and recounts the temptation of Adam and Eve and their banishment from the Garden of Eden.
Paradise Regained, published in 1671, tells of the temptation of Christ by Satan as he wanders in the wilderness for 40 days and nights.

this is not a dramatization!

unlike the BBC's adaption of Dante's Inferno this is only an abridged reading of John Milton's poem. they hired multiple actors to read different parts of the poem but it's not dramatized. the BBC blatantly lied. if anything this would be a dramatic reading. dramatic readings aren't dramatizations though. a dramatization would require additional work in adapting the poem into an actual play format with sound effects.

basically what the BBC did was like filming multiple actors sitting together reading Paradise Lost then releasing it as a filmed version... it's stupid and lazy.

this is not audible's fault obviously.
