Book Overview
Edited by William Kerrigan, John Rumrich, and Stephen M. Fallon Derived from the Modern Library's esteemed The Complete Poetry and Essential Prose of John Milton, this new volume, extensively revised and updated by its editors, contains Milton's two late masterpieces, the brief epic Paradise Regained and the tragic drama Samson Agonistes . Age after age, these works have inspired new controversy and exciting interpretive debates. With expert commentary to guide the reader through historical contexts and verbal details, as well as the larger political and philosophical implications, the concerns of these canonical pieces live once again for today's audiences. The volume also contains Milton's complete shorter poems, which include such major achievements as Lycidas, A Masque Presented at Ludlow Castle, 1634, L'Allegro, and Il Penseroso, and the author's twenty-four influential sonnets. Thoughtfully edited and carefully designed, this is an essential publication of Milton's classic poetry. Praise for The Complete Poetry and Essential Prose of John Milton For generations of readers Milton has been the measure of both eloquence and nobility of mind. For the next generation, this new Modern Library volume will be the standard. It brings Milton, as a poet and a thinker, vividly alive before us.--Robert Hass, former Poet Laureate of the United States A superb edition of the great poet, with modernized spelling, lucid introductions to each work, illuminating footnotes, and fresh prose translations in Latin, Greek, and Italian. This will surely be the edition of choice for teachers, students, and general readers too.--Leo Damrosch, Harvard University
