Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Paradise Lost revivifies Adam's fall from the Garden of Eden. Samson Agonistes follows blind Samson, whose titanic strength destroyed both himself and the Philistines to bring his people deliverance. Lycidas is a pastoral lamentation for a Cambridge student who drowned, and an immortal elegy of all lost hopes.

Synopsis:

With the three works included in this volume--Paradise Lost, Samson Agonistes, and Lycidas--Milton placed himself next to Shakespeare, Dante, and Homer as one of the greatest literary genius in history.

Synopsis:

The three masterworks by the great 17th-century English poetQ"Paradise Lost, Samson Agonistes," and "Lygidas"--are gathered together in this one volume that includes full annotations and explanations, and a new Introduction. Reissue.

About the Author

John Milton was born in London on December 9, 1608, and studied at the University of Cambridge. He originally planned to become a clergyman, but abandoned those ambitions to become a poet. Political in his writings, he served a government post during the time of the Commonwealth. In 1651, he went completely blind but he continued to write, finishing Paradise Lost in 1667, and Paradise Regained in 1671. He died in 1674.
