Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Edited by William Kerrigan, John Rumrich, and Stephen M. Fallon

John Milton’s Paradise Lost, an epic poem on the clash between God and his fallen angel, Satan, is a profound meditation on fate, free will, and divinity, and one of the most beautiful works in world literature. Extracted from the Modern Library’s highly acclaimed The Complete Poetry and Essential Prose of John Milton, this edition reflects up-to-date scholarship and includes a substantial Introduction, fresh commentary, and other features—annotations on Milton’s classical allusions, a chronology of the writer’s life, clean page layouts, and an index—that make it the definitive twenty-first-century presentation of John Milton’s timeless signature work.

Synopsis:

Epic poem in blank verse, one of the late works by John Milton, considered by many scholars to be one of the greatest poems of the English language, Paradise Lost tells the biblical story of the fall from grace of Adam and Eve

Synopsis:

Meticulously edited, full of tactful annotations that set the stage for his work and his times, this Modern Library edition brings Milton, as a poet and a thinker, vividly alive before us.--Robert Hass, winner of the 2007 National Book Award.
