Editorial Reviews

Review

This is . . . the best, absolute best Milton anthology. --Cicero Bruce, McMurry University



Thinking that perhaps it was time after fifteen years of using the Hughes edition of Milton to use a newer edition in my graduate classes, I switched for one semester to the Riverside Milton. It took only one semester to realize that what students gained by way of more recent scholarship could not make up for what they had lost by being deprived of Hughes’ introductions. I won’t be switching again for a long time to come. --Noralyn Masselink, SUNY College at Cortland

15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Chris Mullen on May 2, 2008
Format: Hardcover
This is the best collection of Milton works available that I know of: sturdy, with thick white pages offering ample room for note taking, numerous footnotes, rare works such as Christian Doctrine (which is extremely interesting)and writings from people who knew Milton. Nothing more needs be said. The price, $40 something, is insanely cheap if you consider how much you're paying per work - probably comes out to a couple dollars each.

A lifetime of Milton resides between the durable covers of this book, inexhaustible hours with one of the greatest writers of the English language. Truly, this is one of the most enjoyable books I own.

Bought it for a class that I took as an undergrad and still find myself going back to read it as a wizened adult. You can't talk about appreciating Milton without sounding like a tool, but I sure did appreciate it.

I needed this for a college class. It was great. Quality is good, it was the exact book I needed. The prose inside isn't too bad either. Also saved about 40 dollars buying it here.
