Publisher Comments:

Gordon Teskey's freshly edited text of Milton's masterpiece is accompanied by a new introduction and substantial explanatory annotations. Spelling and punctuation have been modernized, the latter, importantly, within the limits imposed by Milton’s syntax. "Sources and Backgrounds" collects relevant passages from the Bible and Milton’s prose writings, including selections from The Reason of Church Government and the full text of Areopagitica. "Criticism" brings together classic interpretations by Andrew Marvell, John Dryden, Victor Hugo, and T. S. Eliot, among others, and the most important recent criticism and scholarship surrounding the epic, including essays by Northrop Frye, Barbara Lewalski, Christopher Ricks, and Helen Vendler. A Glossary and Selected Bibliography are also included.

Book News Annotation:

Teskey (Harvard University) introduces the general reader to Milton's life (1608-74) and arguably the greatest epic poem in English literature. In reference to glossary notes on the exotic place names in the verse, he calls Milton the first truly global poet. The edition includes introductions to each of Paradise Lost's twelve books, notes on sources, selections from Milton's prose, classic and modern criticism, and suggestions for further reading. Spelling and punctuation have largely been modernized.
