         paradise lost



William Blake: The Temptation and Fall of Eve -
illustration to Milton's 'Paradise Lost' (1808, pen and watercolour on paper)

'Sing Heav'nly Muse, that on the secret top
Of Horeb, or of Sinai, didst inspire
That shepherd, who first taught the chosen seed,
In the beginning how the heav'ns and earth
Rose out of chaos; or if Sion hill
Delight thee more, and Siloa's brook that flowed
Fast by the oracle of God: I thence
Invoke thy aid to my advent'rous song,
That with no middle flight intends to soar
Above the Aonian mount, while it pursues
Things unattempted yet in prose or rhyme.
........................'

Milton
