“Meticulously edited, full of tactful annotations that set the stage for his work and his times, this edition brings Milton, as a poet and a thinker, vividly alive before us.”

Extracted from the Modern Librarys 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 Miltons classical allusions, a chronology of the writers life, clean page layouts, and an index–that make it the definitive twenty-first-century presentation of John Miltons timeless signature work.
