You'll either love or hate John Milton. He's so knowledgeable in many aspects and it shows throughout his text. He's a great author to follow if you see literature as a treasure hunt and Milton makes you dig for the understanding of his vast knowledge!! I didn't like him the first couple of times I read his material, BUT I've come to appreciated and really like his writings of the hunt!! He makes you work for it!!

I am not a religious person (I am sorry to say). However, I felt it necessary to read Paradise Lost. I am glad I did. As usual Amazon delivers.

This everyman's edition does not seem to the edition rated below by others because this has footnotes and not endnotes./ In addition to a wondeful introduction it also contains Aereopagetica and on education which i did not expect from the title. I was pleasanly surpiused by this organzation of the book. Thise works give a good overview of the works, =. Please excuse typos i have a neurologic disease.

It's fine, to a point, to modernize spellings of certain words, provided it doesn't alter the pronunciation (changing "Sion" to "Zion" is a no-no). However, the editors of this volume have also chosen to modernize punctuation to the point that it screws up the rhythm. For example, the contraction "th'Aonian mount" that appears in the opening of Paradise Lost becomese "the Aonian", as if modern readers wouldn't be able to figure it out on their own. This kind of meddling adds extra syllables to lines, screwing up Milton's metre and also insulting the intelligence of readers. If you want a really fine edition, shell out some extra cash for the Hughes volume.
