Comus: A Mask Presented at Ludlow Castle, 1634, Before the Earl of Bridgewater
Experience the artistry and genius of John Milton with Comus, his celebrated masque first performed in 1634. Set in the magical world of Arcadia, Comus tells the story of a virtuous young woman who becomes lost in the woods and is lured by the title character into a decadent, sensual banquet. As the night darkens and danger mounts, she must rely on her wits and her faith to emerge unscathed. Todd's masterful edition includes Milton's original text, extensive notes and commentary, and a wealth of contextual information, making it an essential volume for lovers of Milton and lovers of literature.
