This book is actually only 611 pages with 362 pages of notes I didn t really bother to read the notes Maybe another day I ll read this book again to study the whole thing over.
I really love Milton He might just be my favorite poet In college, I believe, I only read Paradise Lost I might have read Paradise Regained, but I don t remember reading that one The rest of these poems were brand new for me Most of them I liked too.
One of the main reasons I like Milton is because he s such a good writer Something about his poems give me light in my dark brain I can see why William Blake liked him so much I also like Milton because who he was as a person, but this is his poems, not his non fiction, which I have to read at some point.
If you never read Milton before, I recommended him He s not really for everyone Depends if you like old poets and don t mind pro religious writers His words are truly beautiful.
Milton is considered one of the few greatest poets in the English language, so obviously a complete collection of his poetry is going to be pretty good As complete collections normally go, there s a lack of consistency in the interest level that some people are going to be bound to have as far as reading this straight through goes I just skimmed the Latin Greek poems for instance since they basically seemed like exercises in writing classically that were nonessential for me If I were to rank every work in this it would go like this Paradise Lost 5 5 Paradise Regained 5 5 Samson Agonistes 4.
5 5Comus 4 5 Early poems 3 5 overall some are higher lower Latin Greek poems 2 5Suffice to say these works are essential for any student of English writing, poetry, great human achievement in art, and Christianity or classicism in literature I especially recommend reading Paradise Lost at least.
