About this item

A New Companion To Milton

"A New Companion to Milton -- a revised, updated, and enlarged edition of the outstanding first Blackwell's Companion --- will prove indispensable for all students and scholars of Milton and his works. The range of essays is formidable, and the new section on Milton's global impact is particularly welcome."

Karen Edwards, University of Exeter

"A New Companion to Milton updates the award-winning Blackwell Companion from 2001 by providing revisions of all but one of its original essays and by supplementing them with nine new essays on subjects ranging from Milton's sonnets and Latinity to his epic precursors and global reach. Particularly noteworthy are reports on the poet's afterlife in the Arabic-speaking world, Spanish-speaking America, China, India, Korea, and Japan."

Edward Jones, The Milton Quarterly

"The first edition of A Companion to Milton has long been an invaluable resource for students of Milton, and, after 15 years, the expansion and reworking of the essays brings scholarship and critical thinking up to date. Thomas Corns has once again done a splendid job of assembling a team of scholars who can write accessibly and engagingly about Milton."

Gordon Campbell, University of Leicester
