Overview


This edition contains all of Milton's English and Italian poetry in chronological order, including Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained, and most of his Latin and Greek verse. In addition, the text offers a generous sampling of the prose, including the complete text of Areopagitica, Of Education, The Tenure of Kings and Magistrates, The Doctrine and Discipline of Divorce, The Ready and Easy Way, and selections from the Second Defense of the English People, An Apology for Smectymnuus, and Christian Doctrine. Freshly edited, the book has been modernized and annotated to clarify difficulties in syntax and vocabulary and identify historical, classical, and biblical allusions, while the Introduction traces both Milton's changing conception of his vocation and the critical fortunes of his work over the past three centuries.
