Telling Tales brings D.J. Enright's two renowned poetical sequences together in one volume. The first, Paradise Illustrated, is a contemporary telling of Milton's Adam and Eve and their fall from grace in Paradise. The second is A Faust Book, again a retelling of a perenially relevant tale of mankind's arrogance and ambition. Both sequences are immensely comical, witty, outrageous, and sad. They stem from both Enright's knowledge of the work of his great predecessors--Milton, Goethe, and Marlowe--and from his own wry and sympathetic understanding of life. Also included is a new Foreword written by Enright specially for this edition that introduces the two the sequences.
