“There are lots of publications about this era, but this resource brings together the right combination, & presents it coherently. Also, because the teaching of Paradise Lost is the focus of the work, it reduces the time required by the teacher to interpret scholarly works which are written with different intentions. I wish I’d had access to it the first time I taught Milton – it would have made life so much easier."
Pauline Brind, A Level English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

“Very effective & pitched very well for the new A Level specifications. The background is all very comprehensive & is a brilliant starting point for discussion work. The information provided is comprehensive & would really enhance students’ learning by giving them contextual factors influencing the text."
