“widely acknowledged to be the most authoritative edition of this compelling work. An unprecedented amount of detailed annotation accompanies the full text of the first (1667) edition, providing a wealth of contextual information to enrich and enhance the reader”s experience. Notes on composition and context are combined with a clear explication of the multitude allusions Milton called to the poem”s aid. The notes also summarise and illuminate the vast body of critical attention the poem has attracted, synthesizing the ancient and the modern to provide a comprehensive account both of the poem”s development and its reception. Meanwhile, Alastair Fowler”s invigorating introduction surveys the whole poem and looks in detail at such matters as Milton”s theology, metrical structure and, most valuably, his complex and imaginary astronomy. The result is an enduring landmark in the field of Milton scholarship and an invaluable guide for readers of all levels.”
