Overview

Of Paradise and Light: Essays on Henry Vaughan and John Milton in Honor of Alan Rudrum is a collection of fifteen essays that examine intertextual intersections in the works of Henry Vaughan and John Milton. The works of Vaughan and Milton have long been considered rich in antecedent texts or "pretexts." Neither Vaughan nor Milton attempt to hide the origins of their works. Their literary productions are not "original" in the modern sense but are a space upon which past voices are revealed and revised. To read a work by Vaughan or Milton is to be thrust repeatedly into other textual worlds. Their work demands the most active of readers, for we are both invited and compelled to establish the meaning that lies between the texts.
