    Summary: Lines 1– The Prologue and Invocation. Milton opens Paradise Lost by formally declaring his poem’s subject: humankind’s first act of disobedience toward God, and the consequences that followed from it. The act is Adam and Eve’s eating of the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Knowledge, as told in Genesis, the first book of the Bible. April is the cruellest month, breeding. T.S. Eliot, the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, is one of the giants of modern literature, highly distinguished as a poet.

    The last line is a repeat of the first starting line of the poem and the third line of the first is the second of the last. American poets such as John Ashbery, Marilyn Hacker, Donald Justice ("Pantoum of the Great Depression"), Carolyn Kizer, and David Trinidad have done work in this form, as has Irish poet . New lines beginning with lowercase letters vaguely correspond with the shift from earlier to later poetry: for example, the poet John Ashbery usually begins his lines with capital letters prior to his book-length poem "Flow-Chart", whereas in and after "Flow-Chart" he almost invariably begins lines with lowercase letters unless the beginning of the line is also the beginning of a new sentence.

      In the November/December issue, the back-page “Potpourri for the Pen” column featured a matching game in which readers had to match the first lines of famous books to their titles.

The poetic line, like ice cream, come in a variety of flavors: the line can be long, short, left-justified, right-justified, indented, feel abruptly cut off, or stopped at.
