The Great Poets: John Milton
Thoughtful collection of John Milton's finest poetry marks the quatercentenary of the poet's birth in 1608. His uncompromising views set him firmly on the side of Cromwell, putting his life in danger when the Stuart monarchy was restored. But he is now remembered for Paradise Lost and a strong collection of other poetry which influenced successive generations. This CD offers an ideal overview, including excerpts from the major works, including Comus and Samson Agonistes, as well as famous poems such as On his blindness.
