Review of the hardback: '... thoroughly researched, well-written and often fascinating ... Milton and the Idea of the Fall repays careful reading: it is rich, detailed and intelligent.' Times Literary Supplement Review of the hardback: 'Milton and the Idea of the Fall offers a radical rereading of Milton that takes religion seriously without losing sight of the political stakes.' Modern Language Review Review of the hardback: 'Milton and the Idea of the Fall is one of those specialist books that open out to change not only the way we think about Milton, but also the way we conceive of the period.'
