The eight essays in this volume offer a variety of fresh subjects and cutting-edge approaches to Milton's prose and poetry.
The ten essays in Milton Studies 49 cover a wide range of topics including: the relationship of Milton's Satan to Marlowe's work; the adaptation of several episodes and demonic characters in Book II of Paradise Lost to the saga of Odysseus; the implications of Odyssean allusions inParadise Lost as the means of reconciling classical and Christian ethics; Milton's idea of oneness as it evolves from reevaluating sexuality and gender relations in his works and his concept of end-time; Eve's dream in Paradise Lost and the interrelationship of identity, gender relations, and choice; passion in the godhead of Paradise Lost as the depiction of a deity who is not merely anthropomorphic but also anthropopathetic; Jesus' attitude toward reading practice in Paradise Regained; the two natures of Christ in Paradise Regained; the tension between commitment and freedom in Milton's concepts of marriage and divorce; and Milton's influence through the panorama of American literature.
