The epic poem Paradise Lost (1608–1674) by the 17th-century English poet John Milton (1608–1674) is written in blank verse. The original edition, published in 1667, has ten volumes and almost 10,000 lines of poem. In 1674, a second version was published, divided into twelve volumes (similar to Virgil's Aeneid) and with minor alterations throughout. It is often regarded as Milton's masterpiece, and it contributed to his status as one of the finest English poets of his time. The poem is about the biblical tale of Adam and Eve being tempted by the fallen angel Satan and being expelled from the Garden of Eden.
