      Paradise Lost and biblical history follow this same pattern to a point. They both begin with paradise in Eden and show successive stages of degeneration until God destroys the world by flood.

John Milton’s career as a writer of prose and poetry spans three distinct eras: Stuart England; the Civil War () and Interregnum, including the Commonwealth () and Protectorate (); and the Restoration.
