From the Publisher
Edited by William Kerrigan, John Rumrich, and Stephen M.
John Milton's Paradise Lost, an epic poem on the clash
between God and his fallen angel, Satan, is a profound meditation

works in world literature. Extracted from the Modern Library's
highly acclaimed The Complete Poetry and Essential Prose of
John Milton, this edition reflects up-to-date scholarship and
includes a substantial Introduction, fresh commentary, and other
features-annotations on Milton's classical allusions, a chronology
of the writer's life, clean page layouts, and an index-that make it
the definitive twenty-first-century presentation of John Milton's
timeless signature work.
