Description

This volume brings D.J. Enright's renowned sequences together in one book. "Paradise Illustrated" is a contemporary telling of Milton's Adam and Eve and their fall from grace in Paradise, and "A Faust Book" is also a retelling of a perenially relevant tale of mankind's arrogance and ambition. Both sequences are comical, witty, outrageous, and sad. They stem both from D.J. Enright's knowledge of the work of his great predecessors - Milton, Goethe, and Marlowe - and from his own understanding of life: wry and sympathetic. He has written a new foreword, introducing the sequences for this edition. This book is intended for writers, poetry readers, sixth-form and college English students.show more
