Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A welcome addition to Milton studies." --Notes and Queries

"Destabilizing Milton is a brilliant study. Its title has an aptly dangling participle which both refers to the destabilizing elements the poet introduces in his epic and to Herman’s attempt to destabilize the iconic Milton of a critical tradition that ignores the ambiguity and only emphasizes the poet’s certitude...Herman’s book cannot fail to change the way we read Paradise Lost in future."--Heythrop Journal Reviews
