    1. La mayoría de versiones bilingües que se encuentran en las librerías españolas de este libro son carísimas, y no existen con las ilustraciones originales incluidas. Si uno se atreve a comprarlo sólo en inglés, ésta me parece la edición perfecta. Las páginas son gruesas y de calidad, las tapas duras, las ilustraciones muy cuidadas y el precio, visto lo que hay por España, muy económico.Muy muy recomendable para los amantes de esta obra, y para los seguidores de Doré.


    2. Lo compre basícamente por las ilustraciones, las cuales las considero una obra de arte, pero esta edición no las ofrece. vaya decepción.


    3. Lo compré para regalar y la persona a la que se lo regalé le gustó. Se trata de una obra antigua y difícil de entender si no eres un gran entendido en inglés.


    4. has the bad habit of lumping reviews of multiple editions of a book without regard as to author/editor or publisher, to the detriment of the buyer's choosing an edition, so I write to make a few comments on the 984,562 editions of "Paradise Lost" listed for purchase. I have used the titles as listed by to help find the editions I refer to, and, with the exception of the books by Kastan, Lanzara, and BookCaps, the ones I discuss below are ones I own and am familiar with.The version with an intro [...]


    5. This review is for the Kindle edition of Paradise Lost that has been released by Simon & Schuster and has the cover that shows 'with bonus material from '. It's currently selling on for free and it is clearly a promotional edition, so it may not be offered here forever or continue to be offered at no cost.I obtained this for my Kindle because I wanted an edition of Paradise Lost for the Kindle that included the line numbers, and this one does. As far as I can tell so far, the text is all proper [...]


    6. I am a huge fan of Paradise Lost itself, but I want to confine this review to the Kindle edition of the Dover Thrift Editions. The Kindle edition has the text of the poem with straightforward formatting. Line breaks were consistent with what you would expect from print edition. There are no line numbers, but I have yet to see a kindle book with line number in poetry. My biggest complaint is that the footnotes, of which there are many, are not linked into the text, making them practically useless [...]


    7. I have three editions of Paradise Lost—Alastair Fowler's, Scott Elledge's and David Kastan's—, and this is definitely the most suited for my object and needs. David Kastan undertook a throughout update and revision of Merritt Y. Hughes' praised notes to Paradise Lost, and, although I haven't yet read Hughes' original work, I'm inclined to think that Kastan lives up to his illustrious predecessor. This edition includes a fine introduction to the poem, a glossary of uncanny words found in it, [...]
