    Wrote 'Paradise Lost'
    'Paradise Lost' concerns Adam and Eve being kicked out of the Garden of Eden, with a sympathetic view of Satan.
    He writes in 'Paradise Lost,' 'To reign is worth ambition, though in Hell: Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven.'
    He despised Royals, Catholics and lawyers, all of which his younger brother Christopher became.
    At thirty-four, he married a woman half his age (Mary Powell, 17).
    She was a royalist, uneducated, and moved back to her family after one month. They remained married till her death (May 1652).
    His second wife, along with their daughter died after two years of marriage (1658).

    He called for the execution of King Charles I.
    His nickname was 'The Lady' because of his vanity.

    He was a vegetarian.
    He suffered from depression.
    His father, John, Sr., converted from Catholicism to Protestantism and was disinherited by his wealthy Roman Catholic family.
    His father earned wealth on his own and thus afforded the younger John, a good education and freedom from want.
    He advocated Parliamentary rule and an end to the monarchy.
    When he was blind, his assistant read to him the bible each morning in the original Hebrew.
