The wolrd's noblest epic, Paradise Lost, was written by the great Puritan poet, John Milton. He formed the idea of this epic in 1639. However, it was not until 1658, six years after he became blind, that he finally started writing. He finished this epic in 1663.
Due to trouble in finding a publisher, Paradise Lost was not printed until 1667. He received 20 pounds for his work.
