C. S. Lewis' essential text covering the technique, form, structure and theological questions of John Milton's Paradise Lost. Lewis attempts to identify the originally intended meaning of the poem in order to help the reader to have access to Milton's intentions. In the process, the Elizabethan world order, the contemporary theological issues, the differences between De Doctrina and Paradise Lost, critical opinions on Milton's style, diction and characterizations - particularly Satan, Eve, the angels and Satan's followers - are all brought to bear on his discussions in the Preface.
This edition, revised and enlarged, includes a 4-page introduction by Mohit K. Ray
