Historicizing Milton: Spectacle, Power and Poetry in Restoration England

by Knoppers
 

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Knoppers (English, Pennsylvania State U.) shows how Milton's major poems respond specifically to royalist spectacles of the 1660s and 1670s that were intended as displays of divinely approved monarchical power. Drawing on sources such as letters, diaries, newspaper accounts, and sermons, she reconstructs the discourses that interpreted and contested spectacles of power and punishment. Knoppers argues that Milton's poems are part of this oppositional discourse. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
