Gender and the Power of Relationship: "United as One Individual Soul" in Paradise Lost
In this provocative study, the author offers a close reading of pivotal passages and critical concerns in 'Paradise Lost' and examines Milton's presentation of Adam and Eve's relationship through the intersections of theology and gender in the poem. Pruitt demonstrates the Miltonic 'marriage' of theme and structure through an emphasis on the dynamic and restorative power of relationships.
