Resources on Paradise Lost and Regained?

I'm starting to read the poems for the first time, but I'm wondering if there are resources like the footnoted Shakespeare works you can get and also books about the the books about various interpretations and philosophies.

So far I've just found spark notes, but I don't feel like that is what I am looking for.

You might go on your local library's web site and see what links they have. In the meantime:

You can also put the term in Google and see what comes out. Also enter other terms like criticisms.

I highly recommend Norton Critical Editions. You can get Paradise Lost and the major Shakespeare plays in these critical editions. They are extremely reliable and exhaustively referenced, with a selection of the major criticism.

A lot of readers look at Milton's epic with horror, but it is a beautiful, powerful, remarkably dramatic read. You might as well have a Strong's Concordance around as well, since Milton loves to name drop.

Actually, it would be better to confine the search to Google scholar, putting terms in the general search engine will return a lot of student essays and other vague nonsense.
