Milton Quarterly
"Flannagan is eminently qualified to explain the greatness ofEnglish poet John Milton - and he's marvelously successful inachieving his goal[...]Fresh, fluent and witty, Flannagan'streatment is thoroughly informed by the insights of currentliterary insights and is rendered without jargon." LibraryJournal <!--end--> "This is historically informed criticism delivered with alight and generally assured touch and, most successfully, Flannaganretains a clear focus on disclosing what is remarkable aboutMilton, what makes him worth the modern readers' attention... Flannagan has produced a helpful, lively - andintelligently illustrated - little book, to which students may withconfidence be directed."
