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) "
