Imperfect Sense:
The Predicament of Milton's Irony
Victoria Silver

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"Victoria Silver's book has an inclusiveness that I find comparable to Milton's own. With a clarity that is uncanny given the range of materials she brings into play and keeps there, she holds Milton's enterprise in front of her reader by appealing continuingly to an array of coordinates. As she applies to Milton's interests her readings of works by a much larger cast, she is invariably provocative and to the point. Her book unfolds seamlessly whatever writer it is she is addressing. Silver is someone who knows how to write a completely engaging book about everything under the sun. As each of the best books is, hers is one of a kind."--James McMichael, author of The World at Large, New and Selected Poems, 1971-1996

"Silver's book is a seminal study that significantly revises our understanding of the topics that it pursues, each topic having been and continuing to be a major focus of scholarly and critical commentary on Milton. It is also a study in the history of ideas. Expansive in its interpretation of Milton's irony, it achieves a synergy that more monocular studies lack."--Albert C. Labriola, Duquesne University
