This thoughtful collection of John Milton's finest poetry marks the quarter centenary of the poet's birth in 1608. It is read by several of Britain's foremost classical actors, including Anton Lesser, Samantha Bond and Derek Jacobi. Milton's uncompromising views set him firmly on the side of Cromwell, putting his life in danger when the Stuart monarchy was restored. But he is now remembered for "Paradise Lost" and a strong collection of other poetry which influenced successive generations. This collection offers an ideal overview, including extracts from "Paradise Lost" and the complete "Paradise Regained", excerpts from other major works, including "Comus" and "Samson Agonistes", as well as sonnets and famous shorter poems such as "On his Blindness", plus a biography of Milton.
