Parker''s life of Milton has long been accepted as one of the great literary biographies of the twentieth century, a unique accomplishment of scholarship based on a vast range of documentary evidence. Originally published in 1968, the biography was immediately acclaimed as `indispensable'', `authoritative'', as well as `controversial'', and Parker himself was described in The Review of English Studies as `a living library and a walking museum''. Gordon Campbell''s new and revised edition of Volume 1 forms a complete, self-contained, and wholly accessible account of Milton''s life which remains essential reading for the student of seventeenth-century literature, and for anyone who share Parker''s enthusiasm for Milton''s poetry.
Gordon Campbell is the editor of John Milton: Complete English Poems, Of Education, Areopagitica (Dent-Everyman, 1990, 1993), and Macmillan Anthologies of English Literature: The Renaissance (Macmillan, 1989), and Renaissance Studies (OUP, 1987ff)
