13 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Earl R. Sutton on October 11, 2005
Format: Paperback
"'From almost the moment of its publication in 1667, Paradise Lost was considered a classic. It is difficult now to appreciate both how audacious an undertaking it represents, and how astonishing its immediate and continued success was. Over the course of twelve books Milton wrote an epic poem that would ''justify the ways of God to men,'' a mission that required a complex drama whose source is both historical and deeply personal. The struggle for ascendancy between God and Satan is played out across hell, heaven, and earth but the consequences of the Fall are all too humanly tragic--pride, ambition, and aspiration the motivating forces.' In this new edition derived from their Oxford Authors text, Stephen Orgel and Jonathan Goldberg discuss the complexity of Milton's poem in a new introduction, and on-page notes explain its language and allusions."

I bought this book for a course on Milton's Paradise Lost.
The book is very helpful since each line is numbered.
There are no footnotes.

The format of the text is nice. There is lots of margin space to make comments and notes. The commentary in the back is excellent when referencing similarities to the Iliad, Aeneid, and other epics. It is simply good at biblical allusions and not terribly helpful with basic term definition. The commentator has clear opinions in interpretation and presents them in contrast to the interpretations of other commentators. In some instances this is helpful but often touches more academic or obscure points.

I am a huge fan of Paradise Lost itself, but I want to confine this review to the Kindle edition of the Dover Thrift Editions. The Kindle edition has the text of the poem with straightforward formatting. Line breaks were consistent with what you would expect from print edition. There are no line numbers, but I have yet to see a kindle book with line number in poetry. My biggest complaint is that the footnotes, of which there are many, are not linked into the text, making them practically useless in the Kindle edition. It is difficult to switch back and forth between two locations without links, especially when you are not sure what part of the text will have a footnote. So, 5 stars for Paradise Lost, but just 3 stars for the Kindle edition. I would try and find one with linked footnotes.

Well, It's so cheap it's hard to complain, but there is a free one in the kindle store with line numbers so...one star off.

there are no line numbers, so if you were planning on using it for a class or reveiw group, find another edition.

A wonderful look into the philosophy of religion, and the questions any human naturally asks. Home to the favorite quote of Frankenstein's Monster, and a realm of deep thought. This book is inexpensive, completely intact, and a fantastically thought-provoking piece. Anyone who's a lover of religious and philosophical repartee will enjoy this classic novel. Anyone who's read "Frankenstein" may love is doubly so. Buy this -- you won't be disappointed!
