Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Tristan Saldana on July 3, 2000
Format: Paperback
I once said in another review that the number of editions of Milton's poetry could make choosing which one to purchase a tedious process. Gordon Campbell, who revised William Riley Parker's beautifully written biography of Milton, introduces the poems of this Everyman edition with a nice essay and an invaluable chronological table that aligns the poet's life with historical and literary events.
Also, Campbell's own voice comes across clearly which is unusual for an editor. In the second clause of the opening sentence of his introduction, Campbell insightfully speaks of Milton's bizarre talent in checking his great learning against his innate drive to create: " . . . it is remarkable that the weight of his erudition did not crush his genius for writing poetry."
Campbell's humility, which is felt in his confessions of weaknesses as an editor and scholar, comforts the reader through the most allusively amazing read that is Milton's poetry: "In struggling to avoid the occasional perils of dependence on earlier editors I have doubtless made mistakes of my own invention . . . ".
The leaves of the cloth-bound (not the paperback) Everyman edition are acid-free and sewn in signatures.
