Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

 

John Milton wrote poetry of such sublime beauty that he managed, through its universal influence, to transform the character of the English language.

 

From his astonishing epic Paradise Lost, with its magnificent blank verse and mesmerizing characters, to the tragic brilliance of Samson Agonistes, Milton engaged the political and religious issues of his troubled times with subtlety and sophistication. His moving elegy "Lycidas," written after the untimely drowning death of a friend, has been hailed as the greatest lyric poem in English. The classic shorter works, from the pastoral poems "L’Allegro" and "Il Penseroso" to the enchanting masque Comus, to the intensely personal sonnets, share the grandeur and vitality of his epics; all serve as continual reminders of the heights the human imagination can achieve.  With an introduction by Gordon Campbell.
