At the head of the Cambridge Milton series stand two general books: John Milton: Introductions and Paradise Lost: Introduction. These set the tone for and give the background to the editions of individual books. John Broadbent and the contributors to the present volume provide original studies on different aspects of John Milton's life, times, work and ideas. There are chapters on his relation to the music, science and visual arts of the age and there is ample material to stimulate further reading, thought and research. The book can be used by a wide range of readers and students of Milton as an original work of reference - a bank of ideas and resources on which to draw and to develop.
