Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

-Robert Hass, winner of the National Book Award

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.

Praise for The Complete Poetry and Essential Prose of John Milton

In this landmark edition, teachers will discover a powerful ally in bringing the excitement of Milton's poetry and prose to new generations of students.

-William C. Dowling, Rutgers University

This magnificent edition gives us everything we need to read Milton intelligently and with fresh perception.

-William H. Pritchard, Amherst College
