Overview

This volume draws upon the expertise of both historians and literary critics to examine the classical sources of Milton's republicanism, the genesis of that republicanism in the 1640s, its disappointment in the 1650s and its presence in his work (particularly in Paradise Lost) after the Restoration. Milton's prose works and his poetry are given equal coverage, making this the first collaborative volume to attempt a comprehensive thematic assessment of his political and literary career.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...deserves a warm welcome for at last bringing Milton studies fully in contact with these developments in the history of political thought." David Norbrook, Times Literary Supplement

"...happily, the disagreements are there and they add mightily to the breadth and depth of this learned and valuable book." John Rogers, Journal of English and Germanic Philology

"...these essays are a stimulating exploration of the origins, growth, and extent of Milton's republican commitment, and they skillfully locate these political ideals in Paradise Lost." The Sixteenth Century Journal
