Overview

This edition contains all Milton's English poems with the exception of Paradise Lost, together with translations and texts of all his Latin, Italian and Greek poems. Since its first publication in 1968 John Carey's edition has established itself, together with Alastair Fowler's Paradise Lost (also published by Longman) as the standard edition of Milton's poetry for students and general readers alike. It has fuller explanatory notes than any other edition, and - a distinctive feature - a headnote to each poem to summarise the judgements and disagreements of modern critics. The headnotes of this updated Complete Shorter Poems concisely abstract some 700 articles and 70 books that, since 1968, have augmented the scholarly and critical debate about the greatest of England's non-dramatic poets. The result is not just an edition but a clear succinct guide through the rich but bewildering profusion of modern Milton scholarship.
