Book Description

This study, first published in 1979, explores the idea that all spheres of action - hell, heaven, and earth - of the classical epic is relevant to all parts of Paradise Lost. The author also examines the structure, style, and the narrator of the text. This title will be of great interest to students of Milton and English Literature.
