The essays on Samson Agonistes are among the most revolutionary ever composed: the first interprets the protagonist in the context of royalist politics- the second reevaluates Milton’s poem in light of present-day anxiety over terrorism and suicide bombers.

One essay on Paradise Lost examines the theme of obedience in the epic poem and in Milton’s treatise Of Education. A second uses the context of martyrology to investigate Adam’s disobedience in partaking of the forbidden fruit and his willingness to die.

A third essay cites evidence of Milton’s acute awareness of seventeenth-century disputes concerning the structure of the universe, while a fourth essay identifies a baroque sensibility in rhythms of the blank verse. The final essay on Paradise Lost discerns how Milton accommodates science and philosophy in his biblical epic.
