Description

This edition offers all Milton's English and Italian poetry and most of his Latin and Greek poetry, arranged in accordance with dates of publication, together with a generous sampling of the prose, including the complete texts of "Areopagitica", "Of Education", "The Tenure of Kings and Magistrates", "The Doctrine and Discipline of Divorce", "The Ready and Easy Way" and selections from the "Second Defence of the English People", "An Apology for Smectymnuus" and "Christian Doctrine". Annotations gloss difficulties in syntax and vocabulary, provide historical information and identify classical and biblical allusions. The text has been freshly edited and is modernized. The introduction traces both Milton's changing conception of his vocation and the critical fortunes of his work over the past three centuries.show more
