    " Okay, I'll confess I didn't read all of this. But I did read the sonnets, and I like them. Milton, of course, is a genius. "

    " Would have been lost without Claire Tomalin's footnotes on historical context and interpretation. Learnt quite a lot about Greek Gods and The English Civil War to boot! "

    " Mind broadening, juxtaposition and unparalleled delving into the minds and thoughts of, what we often gloss over, Lucifer and God, concerning heaven and hell, war , struggle, sacrifice, eternal loss and redemption. "

    " I'm in the midst of this as a part of my Milton class. I'm learning the depths of allusion and Biblical mysticsm. And the poetic tradition of brag-adociousness. Milton to Mos Def...that would be a class! "
