Paradise lost - Annotated book. And pride is the last enemy we must defeat on the road to self-knowledge. John Milton was a proud man, and he was valiantly attempting to "work out (his) salvation with diligence" - as Eliot‘s character of the psychiatrist says in The Cocktail Party - within the confines of a religion of Love, in which his own immense ego could barely fit. A doomed enterprise!

John Milton (1608 1674) was arguably one of the best-read persons of his epoch. Milton s commonplace book reveals that in addition to the thoroughly humanistic education that he received at Trinity College Cambridge (1625 1632), he also conducted an extensively broad reading program of his own immediately after concluding his university studies, a program that included forays into nearly every branch of learning in a period that he affectionately referred to as his studious retirement (1632 1638). For more than 400 years, many literary critics have declared this monumental work, Paradise Lost, to be the greatest poem in the english language. Stallard contends that a full understanding of the Bible as the poem s primary inter-text is essential to appreciating the poem in its Puritan context. John Milton, Paradise Lost: The Biblically Annotated Edition is lavishly annotated with Biblical references that demonstrates that Milton was mining a wide variety of translations including the 1540 Great Bible, the 1560 Geneva Bible, the Bishops Bible of 1568, the Douay- Rheims of 1582, and the revised Authorized Version of 1612. This biblically annotated edition of Paradise Lost will be useful to scholars and students of Milton alike. That a lack of familiarity with the Bible should discourage students of english literature from reading the pinnacle achievement of one of the finest poets and minds in the english language is both sad and avoidable. This edition makes Milton more accessible, comprehensible, and enjoyable for everyone.
Comments to eBook John Milton, Paradise Lost: The Biblically Annotated Edition
Na
There are many editions of Paradise Lost these days and I decided this one sounded cool because I could have all the biblical references pointed out and explained. Unfortunately, this book just lists Bible verses that are supposedly related but elects not to comment on why is related or what it means or anything remotely helpful. The author even explains this is as a deliberate choice in the foreword. The redeemed verses supposedly speak for themselves.

I guess I was hoping for something that would take, for example, the term "Beelzebub" and provide a short explanatory blurb. Instead, you get miscellaneous verses that supposedly have similar language (so, more holistic than what you could do with a keyword search). This may be of great use to really advanced scholars, but this is really mystifying to amateurs like me. I'm pretty sure I also noticed a meaning changing typo and that's the last thing I want when I'm wrestling with something that's challenging enough on its own due to the archaic language and various poetic references.

This book is perfect for the student or instructor - it has hundreds of biblical annotations. I would not suggest edition for casual reading - the annotations are so vast that they often dominate the page (for example, in book I, the first two pages after The Argument cover only 11 lines of the poem, and nearly 15 annotations in that span), but this edition seems to be the one to get. Stallard makes a pretty convincing argument in the Introduction justifying the need for such an edition of PL - secularization of the university is in part to blame for a decreased understanding of Paradise Lost as the result of a decreased understanding of its source text. Stallard pulls from many different Biblical translations from Milton's time; his primary source is the 1560 Geneva Bible instead of the 1611 Authorized Version that most scholars use in quoting the Bible for Milton studies.

I teach at a small Christian university. I am actually teaching Paradise Lost at this time. This book has been great just for my personal edification, but it has also shown us how much and how efficiently John Milton used the Bible as his source for the epic.

This book is a gem. Its annotations are as interesting as the verse which is better said out loud as it is so grand. If you want an excellent guide to the Bible, these annotations presented thus are enlightening. Read it in a quiet place in secret.

This book is like a Mahler symphony in words. It is not for everybody but for those on a literary and spiritual quest, this is the grandest English ever written. To me it surpasses Dante's Divine Comedy and is profound and of epic magnitude. It is no wonder it is not often read today. This is no seven second grab.

Seek and eye shall find. The gate is strait and few that find it.
