What kinds of freedom are worth fighting for? Should people be free to do things that others consider wrong or evil? In a time of revolutionary war, these were questions of life or death for Milton and his society. In his great poem Paradise Lost he aims to send a timeless message to posterity concerning the true nature and importance of freedom.
