a monument of scholarship, but also a book accessible to any lover of poetry
It's reincarnation is something to be celebrated".
John Mullan, The Guardian
‘This is a very Bible of Milton, and the editors should be upheld forever as the supreme example to all future editors and annotators of English verse’
Selina Hastings, The Daily Telegraph
"Those familiar with the complexities and indecisions of Milton scholarship know how formidable a task it is to prepare an adequately annotated edition of the poems. Mr Carey & Mr Fowler have tackled the task with zest and discrimination as well as perseverance. For several years to come their work will be indispensable to both scholars and students.”
Times Literary Supplement
"For forty years Fowler's magisterial edition of Milton (done in partnership with John Carey) has established the benchmark for erudite commentary in his (and Greenblatt's) field." John Sutherland, The Guardian
"To be honest, I have never a big fan of poetry, but John Milton's epic changed that...The reading can be rather difficult at times, but with Alastair Fowler's wonderful annotations, it is possible for readers of any level to comprehend and enjoy Paradise Lost."
"Fowler's editing and copious yet useful annotations are first rate for any single edition of Paradise Lost. “
