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 H, 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.

John Milton (9 December 1608 - 8 November 1674) was an English poet, polemicist, a scholarly man of letters, and a civil servant for theCommonwealth of England under Oliver Cromwell. He wrote at a time of religious flux and political upheaval, and is best known for his epic poemParadise Lost.Milton's poetry and prose reflect deep personal convictions, a passion for freedom and self determination, and the urgent issues and political turbulence of his day. Writing in English, Latin, and Italian, he achieved international renown within his lifetime, and his celebrated Areopagitica,(written in condemnation of pre-publication censorship) is among history's most influential and impassioned defenses of free speech and freedom of the press.-wikipedia
