Paradise Lost and the Rise of the American Republic
Northeastern University Press, 1992 - Počet stran: 273
Schulman argues that an important, overlooked key to uncovering the social and political subtext of Milton's (1608-1674) epic is its popularity and use in the early American republic. At the same time, she demonstrates that an examination of the American reception of Paradise lost contributes to an understanding of the ideological origins of the American Revolution.
