5.0 out of 5 stars One of the world's greatest poets. 22 May 2013

It helps to know who John Milton was and something about 17th Century history - particularly English history and religious beliefs - to enjoy this. Try paradise lost for starters - the rhythm and the vision is amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible price and collection 5 Jun 2013

Always loved Milton's work... so nice to have it all in a lightweight portable Kindle! I remember how heavy my poetry texts were from grad school. If you love the classics, collect these all from Amazon before they disappear. Too much beautiful writing to be lost.
