Paradise Lost is one of the greatest epic poems in the English language. It tells the story of the Fall of Man, a tale of immense drama and excitement, of rebellion and treachery, of innocence pitted against corruption, in which God and Satan fight a bitter battle for control of mankind's destiny. The struggle ranges across three worlds - heaven, hell, and earth - as Satan and his band of rebel angels plot their revenge against God. At the centre of the conflict are Adam and Eve, motivated by all too human temptations, but whose ultimate downfall is unyielding love. Milton's influence has been felt by many writers since, none more so in recent times than the novelist Philip Pullman. His acclaimed trilogy His Dark Materials takes it title from a line in the poem, and the worlds he created for Lyra and Will have entranced readers across generations. His introduction to the poem is a tribute that is both personal and full of insight; his enthusiasm for Milton's language, his skill, and his supreme gifts as a storyteller is infectious and instructive. He encourages readers above all to experience the poem for themselves, and surrender to its enchantment.

The Commentary, the first full version on Paradise Lost since the Richardsons' in 1734, combines numerous resources with features used for the first time. It includes the best commentary from Annotations like Patrick Hume's (1695), to the variorum editions of Newton (1749) and Todd (1801-42), and the modern professional editions culminating in Alastair Fowler's (1968). Other elements include an essay on the early pre-annotative criticism from 1668, including Marvell, Dryden, Dennis, and others; copious use of the OED; numerous cross-references to Milton's other works and passages in Paradise Lost; fourteen excurses and other contributions by the present editors. This Commentary is itself a research library for Paradise Lost. It uniquely presents biblical, classical, and vernacular citations: the ultimate rather than a more recent source is cited, so dating the comment; every cited passage is quoted, and every question is in English. Only a text of the poem is required. Earl Miner is Townsend Martin, Class of 1917, Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Princeton University, William Moeck teaches English at Nassau Community College.

John Miltons Paradise Lost (1667) gehört zu den großen Klassikern der Weltliteratur. Doch die „alte Sprache“ und der gewaltige Umfang des Werkes wirkten auf viele Leser des 20. und 21. Jahrhunderts nur wenig einladend. Der bekannte Roman- und Sachbuchautor Oliver Fehn hat Miltons Epos nun in ein modernes Deutsch gebracht – und dies, ohne sich sklavisch an die Handlung des Originals zu halten. Während Miltons Kritik am Christentum sich (aus Überlebensgründen) hinter frommen Bekenntnissen verstecken mußte, wird die Geschichte vom legendären Kampf zwischen Gut und Böse hier in jenem ketzerischen Tonfall erzählt, dessen sich wohl auch Milton bedient hätte, wäre er nur „geistig frei“ gewesen. Auf der breiten Palette zwischen pathetisch und rotzfrech bewegt sich Oliver Fehns Erzählstil, wenn er die Legenden um Satans Verbannung, den „Sündenfall“ und die Vertreibung aus dem Paradies vor den Augen des modernen Lesers neu erstehen läßt. Ein Buch für alle, die Miltons Werk schon immer kennen wollten, ohne es gelesen zu haben.
