Review quote

An essential work in understanding both the literary approach of C.S. Lewis and the theological assumptions of Paradise Lost. Unparalleled in its conciseness. I.S. Maclean, James Madison University Still the most lucid, useful, entertaining introduction to Milton's poem anyone has contrived to write. Traditional literary criticism at its best. Lance E. Wilcox, Elmhurst Collegeshow more
