Milton's great 17th-century epic draws upon Bible stories and classical mythology to explore the meaning of existence, as understood by people of the Western world. Its roots lie in the Genesis account of the world's creation and the first humans; its focus is a poetic interpretation "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."
In sublime poetry of extraordinary beauty, Milton's poem references tales from Ovid's Metamorphoses, the Iliad and Odyssey, and Virgil's Aeneid. But one need not be a classical scholar to appreciate Paradise Lost. In addition to its imaginative use of language, the poem features a powerful and sympathetic portrait of Lucifer, the rebel angel who frequently outshines his moral superiors. With Milton's deft use of irony, the devil makes evil appear good, just as satanic practices may seem attractive at first glance.
Paradise Lost has exercised enormous influence on generations of artists and their works, ranging from the Romantic poets William Blake and Percy Bysshe Shelley to Joseph Haydn's oratorio The Creation and J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings.

From the Publisher:

This is the first fully-annotated, old-spelling edition of Paradise Lost to be published in this century. It surveys in its introduction and incorporates in its notes the large amount of criticism published between 1965 and the present--not to mention the criticism that began with Dryden, Addison, Samuel Johnson, and William Blake--and it reflects critical perspectives from New Criticism to Deconstruction, from Philology to New Historicism and Feminism. On the page, the book combines the look and feel of original editions with the convenience of wide margins and thorough annotation.

About the Author:

John Milton (9 December 1608 – 8 November 1674) was an English poet.

Grand Eagle Retail

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. First published in 1667, "Paradise Lost "is considered to be the greatest epic poem in English literature. Its roots lie in the Genesis account of the world's creation and Adam and Eve's expulsion from Eden; it also references tales from the "Metamorphoses," the "Iliad" and "Odyssey," and the "Aeneid." The completed texts of two of the greatest epic poems in English literature are combined in one volume where each provides a profound exploration of the moral problems of God's justice. Each work demonstrates Milton's genius for classicism, innovation, narrative and drama. Includes a new introduction and extensive footnotes. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory # 9780486442877
