An influential and controversial work by Joost van den Vondel (1587-1679), the colossus of Dutch literature, regarded as a major influence on Milton’s Paradise Lost. An angel returns from Eden, his wings singed by the beauty of Adam and Eve’s world, longing for the pleasures of their flesh.

About the Author:

Joost van den Vondel (1587 - 1679) has been described as the Shakespeare of Holland. He is the author of thirty full-length damas, Lucifer being generally regarded as the most accomplished. Noel Clark is a writer and broadcaster. His English verse-translation from Polish of the classic comedy Zemsta (Revenge) by Alexsander Fredro was broadcast by the BBC World Service.

Review:

'Noel Clark...almost persuades you Vondel could out-Milton Milton.' Guardian
