By the use of both new and traditional techniques of critical analysis, Arnold Stein presents in this volume of six essays a fresh interpretation of Milton’s epic._x000B_Beginning with the assumption that style is “answerable” to idea, he has tried to trace Milton’s epic vision as it is bodied forth in patterns of structure (the ideas tested in action) and patterns of expression (the ideas tested in style). Mr. Stein explains: “My approach is in part based on an attempt to accept as fact both that I am a twentieth-century reader and that this is a seventeenth-century poem. Milton is, I think, illuminated by some modern critical considerations; and some of those considerations are in turn illuminated, and some are found wanting.”
