  • Preface: Beyond Misprision
    • Abstract: Sympathize as we might with the forlorn Creature in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, most of us would not consider ourselves to share his mode of reading Milton. When the Creature fortuitously finds in the woods a leather portmanteau containing a copy of Paradise Lost, he evinces the Romantic fascination with the rebel Satan, struck with "wonder and awe" at "the picture of an omnipotent God warring with his creatures."1 The reader might smile knowingly as the Creature takes the action of Paradise Lost to be a true history, along the lines of the human history he has heard while eavesdropping on the DeLacey family through a chink in the wall of his hovel. The Creature's bitter ruminations, as he compares and contrasts ... Read More

  • Reading Graves Misreading Milton
    • Abstract: Nothing can make me like, admire, or even pity John Milton. That was my earliest judgment and the more I read the sounder it seems.Robert Graves is notorious among Milton scholars as the author of the popular 1942 novel Wife to Mr. Milton. The novel is relentless in its representation of Milton as the most abusive of husbands, egotistical and cruel: in the words of one recent scholar, the seventeenth century poet is made to appear "pedantic, selfabsorbed [and] callous."1 By any measure, whatever the very real failings of the historical Milton, Graves's representation of the poet is so extreme that it beggars belief. But Graves was no hack: he was immensely talented, one of the greatest English poets of the ... Read More

  • Milton's Phylacteries: Textual Idolatry and the Beginnings of Critical
           Exegesis
    • Abstract: What does John Milton mean when he refers to phylacteries, as he does four times in his poetry and prose?1 Editorial glosses typically identify both the physical referent of this obscure word and its symbolic significance. Here, for instance, is Martin Dzelzainis's note on the mention of "phylactery" in Tenure of Kings and Magistrates: "A phylactery is a small vellum box containing four texts from Deuteronomy and Exodus worn by Jews at morning prayer as a sign of strict obedience. For Milton it symbolizes the ostentatious display of righteousness."2 There are two problems here. First, Dzelzainis's definition semantically fixes a word whose meaning for Christians was changing in the seventeenth century, its ... Read More

  • "The Minstrelsy of Heaven": Representation and the Politics of Lyric in
           Paradise Lost
    • Abstract: In beginning Paradise Lost chronologically—though, crucially, not narratively—with the Father's exaltation of the Son in book 5, Milton founded his epic on a scene of representation that has proven endlessly vexing to later readers. The language of the Father's decree affords few details concerning the physical cause or theological reasoning behind the Son's newly elevated status, instead focusing on how it will transform the landscape of heaven. Beginning with an apparently exhaustive roll call of the angelic hierarchy of "Thrones, Dominations, Princedoms, Virtues, Powers," Milton's God makes a brilliant visual spectacle of his paternal approval by identifying the Son not yet by his "merit more than birthright" ...

  • Milton's Aristotelian Now
    • Abstract: Of all the markers that anchor the narrative of Paradise Lost in time, the "now," or putative present moment, is perhaps the most ambiguous. In Milton's epic the now ranges in function from designating the actual present moment in the narrative, referring to the time of narration or reading, and specifying a proleptic moment that anticipates future events in the history of humanity. In some of its occurrences in the poem, the now binds past and future events into one continuous whole. In others, the now serves as a boundary of time that disrupts the chronological time of the story. The diverse functions of the present moment in Milton's poem have fostered interpretations of the now as a distinct element that fails ... Read More

  • Body Out of Spirit: Medical Science and the Creation of Living Soul in
           Paradise Lost
    • Abstract: "It is not any more incredible that a bodily force should be able to issue from a spiritual substance, than that something spiritual should be able to arise from a body."In his defense of matter in De doctrina Christiana, Milton makes the curious assertion that body can emerge out of spirit; he states that it did so at the point of Creation, and he comments drily, "that is what we trust will happen to our own bodies at the resurrection."1 This statement directly contradicts the orthodox Aristotelian theory of cause, which holds that any new form can be initiated only by the action of another form upon suitably receptive matter, a view that has often been attributed to Milton. This essay will argue, in contrast ... Read More

  • Solitude and Difference in Books 8 and 9 of Paradise Lost
    • Abstract: From the melancholic speaker of Il Penseroso to the solitary narrator of Paradise Lost, John Milton's literary personas frequently emphasize their own physical, mental, and spiritual apartness. Nor is this solitary condition limited to his poetic voices; the same can be said about most of Milton's major characters. Beginning with his God, who describes himself as "alone / From all eternity" (PL 8:405–06), solitude is the modus operandi of characters as diverse as the Son, Samson, Satan, and the Lady of Comus, as well as the subject of the present discussion, Adam and Eve.1 Despite its nearly ubiquitous presence in his poetry, though, the solitary is often overlooked among critics who identify Milton as a man more ...

  • A Study of Milton's Greek
    • Abstract: If Shakespeare had small Latin and less Greek, Milton had much Latin but even more Greek. The Greek that he quotes in his voluminous Latin prose would amaze us, for variety and depth alike, if it were not so scattered. Translations further disadvantage the Greek whenever one of Milton's Latin texts appears solely in English translation, homogenizing the Greek that they include and losing its interplay with the Latin in the English: this practice forfeits the code-switch and obscures the purpose it had for Milton. Editors too belittle the Greek, being occupationally likelier to gloss Milton's contextual thrust than to dwell on the flavor of each Greek original and Milton's understanding of it. Instead, to bring out ... Read More

  • "Bless Us! What a Word on a Title Page Is This!": Linguistic Purism and
           Milton's English Verse
    • Abstract: We have long known that there are many moments in Paradise Lost when non-English languages influence the diction and syntax of Milton's English verse. In 1712, Joseph Addison counted them among the "Defects of the Poem": "If, in the last Place, we consider the Language of this great Poet, we must allow what I have hinted at in a former Paper, that it is often too much labored, and sometimes obscured by old Words, Transpositions, and Foreign Idioms."1 Thomas Newton was more even-handed in his 1749 annotated edition of the poem when he noted that Milton, "in conformity with the practice of the ancient poets, and with Aristotle's rule, has infused a great many Latinisms as well as Graecisms, and sometimes Hebraisms ...

  • "How cam'st thou speakable of mute": Satanic Acoustics in Paradise Lost
    • Abstract: In his 1936 essay, "A Note on the Verse of John Milton," T. S. Eliot claims that Milton's blindness "helped him to concentrate on what he could do best." This was, in Eliot's opinion, Milton's ability to write superbly musical poetry.1 But for Eliot the genius of his sound is also the sign of his poetic limitation. In his zeal for the aural, Milton neglects the other senses, producing imbalanced poetry in which "the inner meaning is separated from the surface."2 Eliot's backhanded praise of Milton's "auditory imagination" thus begins by echoing traditional acclaim for the "organ music" of Milton's blank verse before joining in the complaint of F. R. Leavis and Ezra Pound, who equated Milton's "orotundity" with ... Read More

  • The Genius of Every Age: Milton and Dryden
    • Abstract: According to an old story, John Dryden asked John Milton for permission to "tag" Paradise Lost, and Milton granted it.1 But after reading The State of Innocence, we may wonder how Milton would have responded if Dryden had explained that he meant to treat Paradise Lost as a builder might use an ancient structure, breaking it down to its smallest components and recycling some of the materials to erect a building with little resemblance to the first. Dryden omits the narrator and most of the heavenly characters from Paradise Lost; chops up many of its speeches, reassigning the bits and pieces to different characters; condenses the epic radically in the process of converting it into heroic drama, a genre with its own ...

  • Galactic Milton: Angelic Robots and the Fall into Barbarism in Isaac
           Asimov's Foundation Series
    • Abstract: If you read John Milton's Paradise Lost you will find that his Heaven is described as an eternal sing-along of praise to God. It is no wonder that one-third of the angels rebelled. When they were cast down into Hell, they then engaged in intellectual exercises . . . and I believe that, Hell or not, they were better off. When I read it, I sympathized strongly with Milton's Satan and considered him the hero of the epic, whether Milton intended that or not.In 1974, science fiction writer Isaac Asimov published an annotated edition of John Milton's Paradise Lost, which he titled Asimov's Annotated "Paradise Lost": An Original Interpretation of Milton's Epic Poem.1 What happens when science fiction meets Renaissance ...
