Paradise lost ; Samson Agonistes ; Lycidas
These three major works by the seventeenth-century English poet show why Milton takes his place beside Shakespeare, Dante, Homer, and Vergil. They ring with the unmistakable clarity of genius, with majesty of language, splendor and wealth of detail, and with the deep conviction of a powerful mind. Milton's masterpieces reflect the light of a many-faceted tradition; the intellectual freedom of Greek classicism, the moral passion of Hebrew prophets, the Protestant sense of an abiding religious belief.
