    ILLUSTRATING PARADISE LOST. BY SARAH HOWE. Introduction. Since its first illustrated edition rolled off the press in , Paradise Lost has fired the imaginations of artists. Generations of painters, draughtsmen and printmakers have tried - and sometimes failed - to create a visual equivalent of Milton.
