Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...This volume far surpasses similar studies in breadth and depth despite its compact size. Part of the "Cambridge Introductions to Literature" series, this volume should become a necessity for teachers and students of Milton."
—Choice

"Dobranski’s is an introduction with a rare combination of concise historical and contextual comprehensiveness and formal literary acumen. It also offers a suggestive vision of the networked nature of authorship and readership, in early modernity and today, not merely a dubiously neutral survey of the best that has been said and thought. As such, it achieves more than what it promises: in addition to offering a thorough introduction to Milton’s poetry and contexts, it enables, if not prompts, the very sort of readerly self-examination that we hope a university education will foster."
—Milton Quarterly
