The Prince

The Prince (Italian: Il Principe) is a political treatise by the Italian diplomat, historian, and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli. The Prince is sometimes claimed to be one of the first works of modern philosophy, especially modern political philosophy, in which the effective truth is taken to be more important than any abstract ideal. It was also in direct conflict with the dominant Catholic and scholastic doctrines of the time concerning how to consider politics and ethics. This treatise is the most remembered of Niccolò Machiavelli’s writings and also the work most responsible for bringing the word “Machiavellian” into wide usage as a pejorative term. Moreover, such has been its influence that it also helped in the transformation of the English term “Old Nick” as a substitute for “devil,” and even contributed to the modern negative connotations of the words “politics” and “politician” in western countries.

Paradise lost

In this classic and timeless poem, we encounter an epic and ground-breaking work of poetry written in blank verse during the 17th century. Paradise Lost was originally published in 1667 in ten books, with a total of over ten thousand individual lines of verse. A second edition, published in 1674, divided the poem into twelve books (in the manner of the division of Virgil’s Aeneid) with minor revisions throughout. The poem concerns the Biblical story of the Fall of Man: the temptation of Adam and Eve by the fallen angel Satan and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden. Milton’s purpose, stated in Book I, is to “justify the ways of God to men.” Paradise Lost is widely considered one of the greatest literary works in the English language.
