"Taken together, the 29 essays collected here strike the perfect balance between an exploration of the contexts surrounding Miltona s writings and an intensive analysis of his poems and prose treatises. Uniformly well researched, felicitously written, and cogently argued, these essays are among the best in present--day Milton studies. They review previous scholarship while pursuing innovative and exciting lines of inquiry that will surely influence commentary on Milton in the foreseeable future." (Choice) "The present state of Milton studies is admirably represented, while a careful distribution of topics has ensured satisfactory coverage of the field. A splendid exhibition of Milton scholarship as it currently flourishes." (Times Literary Supplement) "students [...] will be admirably served by this comprehensive and readable smorgasbord of current Milton studies." (Renaissance Quarterly) "This companion is enlightening and stimulating and will be a helpful addition to libraries, especially those associated with literary and cultural studies."
