Milton's Epic Voice: The Narrator in Paradise Lost

Front Cover
University of Chicago Press, Oct 15, 1983 - Poetry - 187 pages
Although Paradise Lost is one of the greatest poems in the English language, it is also among the most difficult and intimidating, especially to unsophisticated readers. One of the most accessible critical studies of Paradise Lost—and one frequently recommended by those teaching Milton—is Anne Ferry's Milton's Epic Voice.
