Reviews

“All of the essays in this collection are well worth reading. Those in parts 1 and 2 should appeal mainly to Milton scholars and other early modern specialists. … Part 3 should command a broader audience with its diverse perspectives and applications. The collection certainly makes its case that a wide variety of critical and theoretical approaches can contribute greatly to Milton studies.” (Elizabeth Skerpan-Wheeler, Renaissance Quarterly, Vol. 69, 2014)

"This remarkable book offers its readers twelve original essays (including a brilliant introduction) and a cumulative experience of high-quality adventure. The collection contributes not only to Milton studies but also to the history and theory of reading. Experimental, edgy, self-reflective, and wide-ranging in their critical conversations, these writers place Milton in newly framed pictures of a multiple and layered past. In doing so, they make the past speak to and about the resonant 'now' signaled by the title." - Margaret W. Ferguson, Distinguished Professor of English, University of California, Davis, USA

"A remarkably rich collection, organized and presented in a thoughtful, timely form, representing the most interesting developments in recent Milton criticism. Several of the essays should have a major impact on the field for years to come." - Christopher Kendrick, Professor of English, Loyola University of Chicago, USA

"Certain to provoke significant debate on how Milton can be read and renewed awareness that he must Milton Now is nothing short of bracing. Milton's own words in Areopagitica furnish an apt account of the value of this volume: 'Where there is much desire to learn, there of necessity will be much arguing, much writing, many opinions; for opinion in good men is but knowledge in the making.' Milton Now does not shy from the disagreements through which knowledge is refined, and it will be essential reading for Miltonists and non-Miltonists alike. Indeed, part of the volume's brilliance is that it unsettles that distinction." - Melissa E. Sanchez, Associate Professor of English, University of Pennsylvania, USA
