Item Description...
Paradise Lost is the greatest work of one of the most acclaimed poets in English literature. It has had a profound influence on Western culture, and has attracted a vast amount of critical commentary of every sort. First published in 1968, Alastair Fowler's annotated edition of Paradise Lost is acknowledged as the most authoritative guide to this major work, and to the critical analysis that it has prompted. This important new edition maintains the detailed annotation that has for many years provided an interesting and comprehensive explanation to this difficult but compelling poem, making it accessible both to the student and the general reader. It is the only recent edition of Paradise Lost to be based on the text of the first (1667) edition, now widely accepted to be closer to Milton's intention than that of 1674.

He risked his lifeby publishing The Ready and Easy Way to Establish a Free Commonwealth on the eve of the Restoration (1660). His great poems were published after this political defeat.

Kindle edition improperly typeset  Jun 2, 2008
The Kindle edition is improperly typeset, right justified with an overly wide left margin. Even at font size 3 this forces improper and unnecessary linebreaks as early as line 8. It makes font size 4 unusable, though there's plenty of room.
A great edition  Jan 14, 2008
This is a very nice edition of Paradise Lost. It is a good deal for the $20.00 price. As far as the poem itself, Milton does an excellent job at creating a believable dialog between biblical figures. Although his many references to other literary works can become difficult to understand (unless you have read them) Paradise Lost is a must read for any person.
Breathtaking  Jun 6, 2007
With its fine binding, large type, and beautiful paper, this large addition of Milton's Paradise Lost will make a handsome addition to any shelf. Some will say that it is not well suited for the first time reader, lacking the line notes of other annotated additions. I would beg to differ, as such commentary, while deepening ones understanding, can also detract from the majesty of Milton's words. Yes, it is true that the laymen will miss many or even most of the references woven into this, perhaps after Shakespeare's work the greatest piece of literature ever produced in English. However, once captivated by the poetry, readers can always go back and peruse thicker, commentary laced edition. First and foremost, one must dive into the language of Milton, before attempting to wring every drop of meaning from that pool's heady wine.

A note, of course, must also be given to the extraordinary illustrations of Gustave Dore included in this volume. Dore's vision, especially the inexorable dissent of Satan from angelic beauty to demonic ugliness can only add to the readers' joy. At less than $20, one cannot go wrong in acquiring this very fine edition.
Paradise Lost, an interesting belief of Heaven, and of Adam and Eve  Mar 9, 2007
this poetry book is very difficult to understand fully. the summaries at the beginning of each book gives you an idea of what is being said. the poems themselves can elaborate on the summaries. this is a very well written and viewed book of how Heaven split and of how life in the Garden of Eden was before Adam and Eve were forced to leave. I am very pleased with my purchase. sincerely,michael
Wonderful Edition  Feb 8, 2007
It's not too often that one gets to hold a really nice edition of anything. This edition of "Paradise Lost" has heft for sure, is well constucted (don't you hate it when pages fall out of a book cheaply made?)and the design and typography are first class. It also has really quality illustrations from Dore And at this price, how can you lose? I have books costing 10 times as much that are no better made than this one. A really nice piece of work. As pointed out above, there are no notes but I would expect that anyone who would be attracted to this edition already has Fowler's annotated edition already on the shelf. If you don't, ya otta.
