Erin Shields turns heaven and hell upside down in this witty, modern-feminist retelling of John Milton’s epic poem about the first battle between good and evil. In Shields’s Paradise Lost, the 17th century and present day are seamlessly intertwined as Satan vents to an audience about her frustration at being cast out of heaven and her thoughts on oppression.
