Milton and the Death of Man: Humanism on Trial in Paradise Lost

Voorkant
University of Delaware Press, 2000 - 262 pagina's
The core of Milton and the Death of Man is a detailed study of the implicit courtroom narrative (in defense of God) at the heart of Paradise Lost. Separate sections are devoted to the legal and religious background of the notion of a narrative defense of God, the history of the free will concept underlying the defense, the way theories of the origin of the universe bear on the defense, and the question of justice and mercy as they affect both Tempters and Temptees. The study is designed to bring out conceptual issues central to the poem and to the intellectual life of the Renaissance as well as our own culture.
