Paradise Lost

John Milton

Edited by Jack Lynch

There are a few good online texts of Paradise Lost. The plan here is to provide a solid old-spelling edition with enough notes to help students make sense of the text, but not so many as to overwhelm them. I have no intenion of competing with the good scholarly editions.

I’m just getting started on the annotations, so please be patient as I work on this edition.

The text is from the second edition of 1674.
