Overview

An authoritative new edition of Milton’s essential verse

John Milton, who abandoned early plans of becoming a clergyman to become a poet, was a master of almost every type of verse-from the classical to the religious, from the lyric to the epic. His writing reflected his radical views and his profound understanding of politics and power. This collection includes such early works as the devotional “On the Morning of Christ’s Nativity,” “Comus,” and the pastoral elegy “Lycidas.”
