Paradise Lost : an illustrated edition with an introduction by Philip Pullman

£25.99

Product description

A beautifully produced edition of Milton's epic poem with an Introduction by Pullman (whose trilogy His Dark Materials takes its title from the poem) and engravings by Michael Burghers from the first illustrated edition of 1688.

Black cloth, gilt; unmarked. Dustwrapper unclipped, slight shelfwear. Red eps and marker ribbon. Internally unmarked (tiny red mark to half-title printer's error), as new. 374 pp; 12 b&w illus, titles and headers printed in red.

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 Adamand 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 its 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, skill, and supreme gifts as a storyteller is infectious and instructive. Heencourages readers above all to experience the poem for themselves, and surrender to its enchantment.
