“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.”

― John Milton, Paradise Lost

 

A charming collection of John Milton’s works including ‘Paradise Lost’ and ‘Paradise Regain’d’ among his other poetry and writings. These beautiful books are filled with full-page engravings by J M W Turner depicting the characters of Milton’s most famous works.

 

Paradise Lost’ was critically acclaimed and well-received by many famed personalities, including Samuel Johnson who states:

“[Paradise Lost shows] Milton’s peculiar power to astonish…and he seems to have been well acquainted with his own genius, and to know what it was the Nature had bestowed upon him more bountifully than upon others: the power of displaying the vast, illuminating the splendid, enforcing the awful, darkening the gloomy, and aggravating the dreadful.

Current Christian writer at the time C.S. Lewis, also interpreted Milton’s landmark poem as a ‘genuine Christian morality tale’ (Leonard)

 

The Metropolitan Magazine of 1835 says of this 6-volume collection,

“In all the extrinsics of a book, these volumes leave us nothing to wish for… we do not know of any edition at once so convenient for general use, and worthy to occupy a place on the literary shelf, in rank with the well-bound classics of all countries.”
