Book Overview
Edited by William Kerrigan, John Rumrich, and Stephen M. Fallon The legendary author of Paradise Lost and other poems was also a superb and provocative prose writer. Culled from Modern Library's definitive The Complete Poetry and Essential Prose of John Milton , this indispensable collection, authoritatively annotated and updated for this new volume, now includes selections from Milton's Commonplace Book and the complete text of The Tenure of Kings and Magistrates in addition to Milton's letters, pamphlets, political tracts, and essays. Milton tackles diverse subjects and takes controversial positions, including notorious defenses of divorce and protests against censorship. With expert analysis, a chronology of the author's life, clean layouts, and a comprehensive index, The Essential Prose of John Milton is an invaluable keepsake--a book bound to be a revelation for all readers of this monumental author. Meticulously edited, full of tactful annotations that set the stage for his work and his times, and bringing Milton, as a poet and a thinker, vividly alive before us.--Robert Hass, former Poet Laureate of the United States
