Living Texts: Interpreting Milton
Kristin A. Pruitt, Charles W. Durham
Susquehanna University Press, 2000 - Literary Criticism - 312 pages
The essays in this collection are a testimony to Milton's claim that books doe contain a potencie of life in them to be as active as that soule was whose progeny they are. They are proof that Milton's progeny, whether poetry or prose, continue to inspire readers to investigate and interpret, and that even the poet himself is at times the subject of scrutiny. Although these essays examine issues as widely diverse as the reliability of Adam's narration to Raphael and the portrayal of chaos in Paradise Lost to the poet's role as an object of erotic attention in the nineteenth century, all suggest that Milton's are still living texts.
