Milton by John Milton

Book Description

John Milton wrote poetry of such sublime beauty that he managed, through its universal influence, to transform the character of the English language. From his astonishing epic "Paradise Lost," with its magnificent blank verse and mesmerizing characters, to the tragic brilliance of "Samson Agonistes," Milton engaged the political and religious issues of his troubled times with subtlety and sophistication. His moving elegy Lycidas, written after the untimely drowning death of a friend, has been hailed as the greatest lyric poem in English. The classic shorter works, from the pastoral poems L Allegro and Il Penseroso to the enchanting masque Comus, to the intensely personal sonnets, share the grandeur and vitality of his epics; all serve as continual reminders of the heights the human imagination can achieve. With an introduction by Gordon Campbell. (Book Jacket Status: Jacketed)"
