Description - Imagining Death in Spenser and Milton by Elizabeth Jane Bellamy

This is a collection of essays on the topic of death in two monumental representatives of the early modern canon, Edmund Spenser and John Milton. The volume draws its impetus from the conviction that death is a central yet curiously understudied preoccupation for Spenser and Milton, contending that death in all its early modern reformations and deformations is an indispensable backdrop for any attempt to articulate the relationship between Spenser and Milton.
