Milton Studies, volume 56, features ten original and timely essays that explore relationships within Miltonic narratives, intertextual relationships, and Milton’s own relation to philosophy and to history. Specifically, contributors examine satanic interpretation and Eve’s fall; divine, satanic, and shifting human vocatives in Paradise Lost; Milton’s Son of God and the complexities of familial relationships; monsters, heroes, and the relation of the 1671 poems; Margaret Atwood’s dystopian rewriting of Milton and the Fall; philosophical models of freedom in Paradise Lost; epistemology and contrasting agency in Milton’s Eden and hell; the camera obscura and vision in Paradise Lost; handbooks for holy living and Paradise Regained; and Miltonic history as wandering and episodic romance.
