Perhaps the greatest poet in the English language after Shakespeare, John Milton actually published very little until the appearance of Poems of Mr John Milton, both English and Latin in 1646, when he was thirty-seven. Including a wide range of his verse, this completely new selection of
Milton's finest poetry offers extensive passages from Samson Agonistes, Paradise Regained, and his most famous work, Paradise Lost. Accessible and fully annotated, this volume shows just why Milton's influence on English poetry and criticism has been incalculable.
