John Milton's Paradise Lost reveals much
about the relationship between God, the world, and the human race. For
Milton, the human condition consists of a tension between demonic and
sacred vices. Thus, the human race stands divided against itself and is
forever expelled from Eden. The
title, John Milton’s Paradise Lost, part of Chelsea House Publishers’
Modern Critical Interpretations series, presents the most important
20th-century criticism on John Milton’s Paradise Lost through extracts
of critical essays by well-known literary critics. This collection of
criticism also features a short biography on John Milton, a chronology
of the author’s life, and an introductory essay written by Harold
Bloom, Sterling Professor of the Humanities, Yale University.
