English Translation Line#1-16

The first act of disobedience was committed by our grand parents Adam and Eve who ate the fruit of that forbidden tree whose mortal taste became the cause of human death ,grief and misery and above all Man lost his blissful seat in the Heaven, till one great man the Christ helped regaining our lost status.

The poet requests the goddess of poetry to help him in writing this grand poem epic.He requested to the sacred gods and goddesses on the top of Oreb and Sinai which inspired the Moses who told the Jews about the creation of the skies and the Earth out of chaos, in the beginning.

If Sion hill and the sacred spring of Siloa that flowed fast by the temples of gods and goddesses , help me in accomplishing this grand task,the task of writing this epic poem on a universal topic.It is a poem of unique topic and it will touch the heights of Mount Silicon, as this topic was not attempted by anybody in prose and poetry.

Paradise Lost is an epic that has a world wide fame.This poem bears all the requirements of an epic.Milton discusses every thing pedagogically.He takes reference from history and elaborates them very well.In the first sixteen lines, he attracts the attention or the readers towards a big sin which was committed by our forefathers-the sin of God s' disobedience.Adam and Eve,in the Heaven,were passing a very happy life.There they were allowed to enjoy each and every pleasure except one restriction.They were not allowed to eat the the fruit of the forbidden tree.Satan,the biggest enemy of the Man, urged them to eat that fruit-apple.Adam violated the commandment of God and ate the fruit of that tree.With this act,griefs and death introduced in the world and this caused their expulsion from the Eden.

Milton s' invocation from the Muse: the goddess of the poetry follows the requirement of a grand epic.Like other poets,he invokes the Muse to help him in writing and elevating this epic poem because it bears a universal theme.Here in this epic Milton wants to justify the ways of God to men.
