Paradise lost : authoritative text, sources and backgrounds, criticism by John Milton( Book )

Written at a time of personal and political crisis in Milton's career (1658-65), Paradise Lost is the greatest epic poem in English literature. It had an immense influence on the English Romantics and, through them, on modern poetry. This Norton Critical edition is based on the 1674 edition of the poem, the last to appear in Milton's lifetime, with a few emendations and adoptions from the first edition and from the scribal manuscript, and noted. Gordon Tesky provides readers with a freshly edited text intended for those approaching Milton for the first time. Spelling and punctuation have been modernized, the latter within the limits imposed by Milton's syntax. The text of Paradise Lost is accompanied by an introduction, an introduction, an account of Milton's life, ample annotations, a glossary, and suggestions for further reading. Also included is an unusually rich criticism section, which collects forty-eight diverse commentaries and interpretations, culled from the enormous body of scholarly writing on the poem. -- From Back Cover

Orlando Furioso by Lodovico Ariosto( Book )

4 editions published in 1816 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With this new verse translation of Orlando Furioso ("Mad Orlando"), David R. Slavitt introduces readers to Ariosto's now-neglected masterpiece - a poem whose impact on Western literature can scarcely be exaggerated. Now, through translations of generous selections from this longest of all major European poems, Slavitt brings the poem to life in ways previous translators have nor." "At the heart of Ariosto's romance are Orlando's unrequited love for the pagan princess Angelica and his jealous rage when she elopes. The action takes place against a besieged Paris, as Charlemagne and his Christian paladins defend the city against the Saracen king. The poem, however, obeys no geography or rules but its own, as the story moves by whim from Japan to the Hebrides to the moon; it includes such imaginary creatures as the hippogriff and a sea monster called the orc. Orlando Furioso is Dante's medieval universe turned upside down and made comic. Characterized by satire, parody, and irony, the poem celebrates a new humanistic Renaissance conception of man in an utterly fantastical world. Slavitt's translation captures the energy, comedy, and great fun of Ariosto's Italian."--Jacket

The works of Josephus : complete and unabridged by Flavius Josephus( Book )

6 editions published between 1795 and 1829 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: This renowned reference book has served scholars, pastors, students, and those interested in the background of the New Testament for years. The insight given into the Essene community, the destruction of Jerusalem and the interpretations and traditions of the Old Testament in first century Judaism is invaluable. The outlook of Josephus, a late first century Pharisee and historian, on Jesus and the New Testament documents is enlightening and provocative. As an original reference, The Works of Josephus is essential to a full understanding of the first century, the time of Christ and the New Testament. Complete and unabridged, this is the best one-volume edition of the classic translation of Josephus' works. The entire text has been reset in modern, easy-to-read type; numbering corresponding to that used in the Loeb edition has been added to the text; and citations and cross-references have been updated from Roman numerals to Arabic numbers
