Milton's Poetry of Independence: Five Studies
Bucknell University Press, 1999 - 160 pagina's
John Milton's vocation was that of a great poet, but he stood on the field of ecclesiastical and political controversy throughout his writing career. Milton's Poetry of Independence examines patterns of ecclesiological and affective imagery in five poems by Milton. The book shows how Milton's ecclesiastical nonconformity, his Puritan Independency, had important uses in his poetic art.
