Paradise Lost

John Milton
Edited by Stephen Orgel and Jonathan Goldberg

Oxford World's Classics

  • Well established text taken from the same editors edition of Milton's Major Works which was previously published in the acclaimed Oxford Authors series
  • Excellent new introduction contextualizes Milton and his poem and discusses the poem's structure, language, God vs Satan and a summary of critical responses to the poem since its publication
  • Since the poem needs frequent annotation the notes are set at the foot of the page instead of at the back of the book which makes referring to them very much easier
  • Modernized text
  • Orgel and Goldberg are well known and widely respected scholars of long standing
