9780140424263: Paradise Lost (Penguin Classics Series)

Long regarded as one of the most powerful and influential poems in the English language, Paradise Lost still inspires intense debate about whether it manages "to justify the ways of God to men" or exposes the cruelty of Christianity or the Christian God. John Leonard's illuminating introduction is fully alive to such controversies; it also contains full notes on language and many allusions to other works.Paradise Lost conjures up a vast, awe-inspiring cosmos and puts a naked Adam and Eve at the very center of its story.

Book Description:

Edited, with an Introduction and Notes, by William G. Madsen

About the Author:

John Milton was born into a middle-class family in 1608. He was a poet and man of letters who got involved in the radical politics of his time. He championed the cause of the Puritans and Oliver Cromwell and served in Cromwell's government. In 1651 he went blind. When Charles II was restored to the throne in 1660, Milton was arrested. He was soon released to live the rest of his life in seclusion, where he was able to create some of his greatest works.
