Product Description

Review

[A]n exemplary job both of presenting the major topics of Paradise Lost and of entering the selva oscura of Milton criticism... Students and scholars alike will appreciate the balanced approach to the complexities, difficulties, and conundrums of Milton's poem and the criticism on it. Kastan's prose is not just lively but chiseled, and it is destined to affect students. --Patrick Cheney, Studies in English Literature, 1500-1900 Kastan is an exemplary editor, attuned to emerging critical currents, yet steeped in the scholarship of an earlier tradition, aware of the text's provenance and reception, alert to its topicality. His introduction, a model of theoretically informed, politically committed, historically grounded criticism, makes this edition of Paradise Lost all you would expect from one of the most erudite and perceptive figures in the field. --Willy Maley, Modern Language Review This is a superb edition, a model of careful editing and judicious annotation. --Leslie Brisman, Department of English, Yale University --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.

First Sentence
This first book proposes, first in brief, the whole subject: man's disobedience and the loss thereupon of Paradise wherein he was placed; then touches the prime cause of his fall, the serpent, or rather Satan in the serpent, who, revolting from God and drawing to his side many legions of angels, was by the command of God driven out of Heaven with all his crew into the great deep. Read the first page

Many books have been omitted which degrades the overall structure of meaning. Considering book-1 in particular there are also omissions within the book, which have a serious effect on the meaning of the poem. The delivery is often, but not always, rushed and lacking in expression, perhaps due to time constraints?

Of the ommissions I missed the scenes with Raphael the most, especially given the absence of any of the scenes [other than in paraphrase] dealing with the father, the son or the angels.
On a personal note, I think it's quite disappointing that Sin was voiced by a man. It didn't really sound genuine when she describes the horrors she endures at the hands of her children coming from a male voice.

Both the other reviews complain about missing sections of the poem. The description states that this is the abridged version. If you want the complete version this is the one you are after Paradise Lost.
