John MILTON Le paradis perdu de Milton, poëme héroïque


Le paradis perdu de Milton, poëme héroïque

Chez la Veuve Savoie, à Paris 1765, pet. in-12 (8X14,5cm), 4 volumes reliés.

New edition in the prose translation of Dupré de Saint-Maur, with the remark Addison in fine. These remarks, the true test of Milton poem covers pages 221-375.
Full brown calf granite. Smooth back decorated. Part of title and volume number in red morocco. Volume I ripped the caps. 6 corners bumped. Friction. Pretty good together.
Furthermore Paradise Lost, Volume III contains various works of the author: Lycidas, L'Allegro, Il pensero. The fourth volume is filled with six critical letters, excluding Addison remarks, and all volumes are annotated footnotes. Good reprint of this critical edition. The work was originally published by Milton in 1667. The reception was tremendous and lasting psuiqu'elle was renewed by the translation of Chateaubriand (which saw the size and depth of the Christian myhtologie); and long regarded Milton as the equal of Homer, while his poetry appears very outdated now confined to Christian Puritanism and rhetorical emphasis. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
