Milton Studies, Volume 45
Albert C. Labriola
University of Pittsburgh Press, Oct 1, 2005 - Reference - 209 pages
The eight essays in this volume are evenly divided between the poetry and prose of Milton.† Two of the essays discuss major sonnets, and two other essays on poetry engage Paradise Lost and Paradise Regainí d, respectively.† The essays on prose are brilliantly revisionist: one, for example, analyzes Aeropagitica by citing the ironic relationship of truth and the grotesque.† Another examines the rhetorical techniques Milton employs for the capable though small audience at which he aims Eikonoklates.† The third discusses how and why Milton embeds autobiographies in the midst of political tracts, and the final essay studies an often overlooked work, the Art of Logic, and its value in illuminating selected poetry and prose of Milton.
