John Milton’s Literary Reputation: A Study in Editing, Criticism, and Taste
2010 0-7734-3802-5
This book distinguishes Milton’s academic importance from his real status, and addresses readers with broad literary interests, who may be ready to think again about a poet whom Dryden saw as superior to both Homer and Virgil. The work is therefore a contribution to the ongoing histories of Milton’s reputation in particular, and literary taste in general.
