    Purchase a modern edition

    Half the time I could figure out what the words where suppose to be. The miss spellings could be so bad at times that meanings of entire sentences were lost.

    Classic Poem, Great Edition

    Milton is hard to read. The language of the late 1600's seemed impenetrable to me at first, but Teskey's notes helped me through it. Not much has to be said about the poem itself: it is cemented in the canon of the English language as a masterpiece. One thing I was surprised by was the sympathetic construction of Satan. He is not an evil character, he is just angry and even embodies human traits. This edition also includes John Milton's work Areopogatica about the Church of England and their licensing rights. I was moved by Milton's defense of free speech.

    Helpful thing

    I read this in my senoir year of high school i thought it was not only attention grabbing but helpful in adding to mmy knowledge. When you think about what you generaly learn in sunday school helped made sense of some of the things you learn in it.

    In its original script, most people will find it hard to follow.

    Hard to follow yet worth reading. Modern versions of this text often bastardize the real meaning. If you have read a newer version you would do well to read this if not another more concise version to get the full meaning of 'Paradise Lost'.

    Illegible garbage

    This clearly was OCR and never proofed or corrected. Essentially impossible to decipher.

    Oh no!

    Just got the free B&N book because it was supposed to not be full of typos and introduced charactets. WRONG! Note to B&N: Try to read Page 22. Go ahead and try. Usually don't critique free books, but it's description said it had been improved and not OCR'd. You cannot tell it. Will be deleted.
