Lucifer (Oberon Classics) (Paperback)
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.
