Available for the first time in an affordable yet authoritative edition, The Annotated Milton encompasses the monumental sweep of John Milton's poetry. Here are Milton's early works, including his first great poem, "On the Morning of Christ's Nativity," the light and lyrical "L'Allegro" and "II Penseroso," the masque Comus, and the lushly beautiful pastoral elegy "Lycidas." Also included in their entirety are the three epic poems considered to be among the finest works in the English language: Paradise Lost, Paradise Regained and Samson Agonistes. Fully annotated by Burton Raffel, this distinguished edition clarifies the complex allusions of Milton's verse and references the personal, religious, historical, and mythical influences that inspired the great blind poet of England, who ranks among the undisputed giants of world literature.

John Milton (1608-1674) was a peerless classical scholar, a radical nonconformist deeply involved in the great events of his time, and one of the most original and enduring poets the world has ever known. His work ranges from the majestic grandeur of Paradise Lost, an epic poem in which he virtually reinvented the English language, to sonnets that are startlingly modern in their confessionalism and immediacy. In him, the prophetic and humanist strains of the Western mind fuse in uncanny ways to create poetry that is at once massive and delicate, at once strange and utterly familiar.

In the course of an engaged life which saw his involvement (as polemicist, pamphleteer, and Latin Secretary to Oliver Cromwell) in the civil wars of seventeenth century Britain, John Milton wrote poetry of such sublime, sonorous beauty that he managed, through its universal influence, to transform the character of the English language itself. The great epics, with their luxurious blank verse and magnificent characterizations, the masques, pastorals, and verse dramas, and the intensely personal sonnets, are, together and individually, continual reminders of the heights the human imagination can achieve.

Although he wrote Comus and "'Lycids" shortly after leaving Cambridge, Milton devoted much of his adult life - and even sacrificed his eyesight - to defending the cause of Cromwell's Commonwealth. His later poetry, produced after Charles II's Restoration led to the defeat of his hopes, reflects his deep first-hand understanding of politics and power. In this Penguin English Poets edition, John Leonard has modernized spelling, capitalization and any punctuation likely to cause confusion. He calls particular attention to words invented by Milton and those which have changed their meaning since his time. And he provides full notes to elucidate Biblical, classical and historical allusions, many of which complicate or even conflict with the plain sense or moral implications of the text.

In the course of his forty-year career, John Milton evolved from a prodigy to a blind prophet, from a philosophical aesthete to a Puritan rebel, and from a poet who proclaimed the triumph of reason to one obsessed with the intractability of sin. "The Portable Milton" is an authoritative grand tour through the imagination of this prodigal genius.

In Paradise Lost, Milton produced a poem of epic scale, conjuring up a vast, awe-inspiring cosmos and ranging across huge tracts of space and time. And yet, in putting a charismatic Satan and naked Adam and Eve at the centre of this story, he also created an intensely human tragedy on the Fall of Man. Written when Milton was in his fifties - blind, bitterly disappointed by the Restoration and briefly in danger of execution - Paradise Lost has an apparent ambivalence towards authority which has led to intense debate about whether it manages to "justify the ways of God to men", or exposes the cruelty of Christianity.

Of Man's first disobedience and the fruit
Of that forbidden tree whose mortal taste
Brought death into the world and all our woe,
With loss of Eden, till on greater Man
Restore us and regain the blissful seat
Sing, Heavenly Muse...

Thus begins the epic poem, considered the greatest in the English language, as John Milton seeks to "justify the ways of God to men" through relating the story of Satan's rebellion in Heaven, the deception and fall of Man, and the presaged event of Redemption through Jesus, the Son of God the "Second Adam."

An English cleric with a classical education, Milton lost his eyesight in 1652, and thus the story was largely dictated by the blind poet, lending a certain quality of the ancient oral epics, which only serves to enhance the telling of the tale. Weaving classical mythology with a deep knowledge and reference to Scripture, Milton's genius for narrative unfolds what his biographer, Samuel Johnson, called his "peculiar power to astonish." Unabridged. 8 CDs. 9.5 hours. Read by Nadia May.

A retelling of the biblical story of mankind's fall from grace, John Milton's blank-verse epic poem was composed while the author dictated the poem to a series of aides, due to the poet's blindness. The epic opens shortly after the dramatic expulsion of Satan and his army of angels from Heaven. What follows is a cosmic battle between good and evil that ranges across vast, splendid tracts of time and space, fron the wild abyss of Chaos and the fiery lake of Hell to the Gate of Heaven and God's newly created paradise, the Garden of Eden. Controvery still swirls around Milton's magnificent and sympathetic characterization of Satan, a portrait so compelling thatmany critics have maintained that he is the true hero of the story. 9 hours - unabridged.
