More About the Author

John Milton was born on 9 December 1608 in Cheapside,
London. He published little until the appearance of Poems of Mr
John Milton, both English and Latin in 1646, when he was 37. By
this time he was deeply committed to a political vocation, and
became an articulate and increasingly indispensable spokesman for
the Independent cause. He wrote the crucial justifications for the
trial and execution of Charles I, and, as Secretary for Foreign
Tongues to the Council of State, was the voice of the English revolution
to the world at large. After the failure of the Commonwealth
he was briefly imprisoned; blind and in straitened circumstances
he returned to poetry, and in 1667 published a ten-book version
of Paradise Lost, his biblical epic written, as he put it, after 'long
choosing, and beginning late'. In 1671, Paradise Regained and
Samson Agonistes appeared, followed two years later by an expanded
edition of his shorter poems. The canon was completed in 1674, the
year of his death, with the appearance of the twelve-book Paradise
Lost, which became a classic almost immediately. His influence on
English poetry and criticism has been incalculable.

A good volume, though it would have been better if annotated the bottom of each page, not at the back.

Greatest English writer 25 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a delight. Great for anyone who loves English literature. Possibly the greatest man ever to write in English; rivalled only by Shakespeare. I'm not much of a fan of poetry, but this takes my breath away. Only quibble: for a text this wonderful and timeless, I would have expected a better presentation. The paperback of this book has a cheap binding, and is printed on what feels like pulp paper.

A Rare Find! 2 April 2008
By Daniel P. Collins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It's very rare to encounter Milton's works in the original Englosh! Almost nobody speaks, reads or writes Englosh anymore, and it's delightful to think that Milton might have been one of my drinking buddies!
