Heroic Knowledge

An Interpretation of Paradise Regained and Samson Agonistes

Author:

Arnold Stein

Heroic Knowledge

“It is a product of ripe, sensitive, discriminating perception and reflection, and it rounds out the view of Milton and his major poems set forth in Mr. Stein’s previous book. The study of Paradise Regained is especially welcome because that poem has so often been dismissed as a pseudo-poetic ice house. Mr. Stein assumes, and in the course of his exposition makes clear, that it is a moving poem concerned with great issues.”

“Mr. Stein reads Milton with refined sensibility and a deep sense of the seriousness of poetry. He gives evidence of wide and thorough scholarship, and demonstrates a philosophic competence a professional would be proud of. His book ought to complete the restoration of Milton as one of the great poets of the English language.”
