Product Description

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.
