Description
This thoughtful collection of John Miltons finest poetry marks the quarter centenary of the poets birth in 1608. It is read by several of Britains foremost classical actors, including Anton Lesser, Samantha Bond and Derek Jacobi. Miltons uncompromising views set him firmly on the side of Cromwell, putting his life in danger when the Stuart monarchy was restored. But he is now remembered for Paradise Lost and a strong collection of other poetry which influenced successive generations. This collection offers an ideal overview, including the complete Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained, excerpts from other major works, including Comus and Samson Agonistes, as well as sonnets and famous shorter poems such as On his blindness, plus a biography of Milton.
