Paradise Lost (Oxford World's Classics)
Many people have a 'Greatest Books I've Never Read' List. Included on that list could well be Milton's great work.
There is no doubt that it can be daunting to see those pages of finely printed epic poetry, scattered with 17th Century word usage and Classical, Mythological and Biblical allusions.
We may even have started on Book 1, and 'fallen at the first fence', never to rise and canter on! What is needed is a clearly printed version, with helpful introduction, and (most importantly) copious on-page footnotes to enlighten and instruct. This is just such a version, and can be highly recommended.
Tick this classic text off your List! Milton, you can be living at this hour!
