Oxford Student Texts: Paradise Lost Books 1 & 2 by John Milton, Anna Baldwin


Oxford Student Texts: Paradise Lost Books 1 & 2 by John Milton, Anna Baldwin

One of a series designed to provide a new, accessible approach to the works of great poets and playwrights. Each text includes general notes on the text; discussion of themes, issues and context; and suggestions for further reading.


The difference with this edition of Paradise Lost is that it has line numbers. Yes believe it or not some editions lack those, which makes it terribly hard to follow in class. It also has loads of context on the book, notes on things like Pandemonium etc. There are also bits at the end of Book Two that explain certain parts of the poem. It is a must buy for all students that are studying it. 5 star Amazon review
