This is book number 51 in the Milton Studies series.


Published annually by Duquesne University Press as an important forum for Milton scholarship and criticism, Milton Studies focuses on various aspects of John Milton's life and writing, including biography; literary history; Milton's work in its literary, intellectual, political, or cultural contexts; Milton's influence on or relationship to other writers; and the history of critical response to his work. The eight essays in this volume offer a variety of fresh subjects and cutting-edge approaches to Milton's prose and poetry. Topics in this issue include Macbeth and the uncanny in The Tenure of Kings and Magistrates; murmuring, blindness, and the service of God in Sonnet 19; the androgyny of Milton's epic self-presentation; the politics of heavenly and infernal triumphs in Paradise Lost; the literary history of satanic envy; Milton's fully dramatic (and sometimes unreliable) narrator in Paradise Lost; the fetishism of Milton's body in the biographical and critical heritage; and John Collier's provocative screenplay adaptation of Paradise Lost.

Hardcover is un-jacketed.
