Editorial Reviews

'My favorite of all the recent Milton books, Margaret Olofson Thickstun's Milton's Paradise Lost: Moral Education, points out how occupied with teaching and learning everyone except Satan is ...The author emphasizes the earthy humbleness that anchors this loftiest of poems.' - Jonathan Rosen in The New Yorker

'Thickstun is a canny close reader.' - Roger Pooley, Modern Language Review
