Identifies the specifics of Milton's reliance upon the Bible and provides a data base for that information. Milton students and scholars can quickly and easily appreciate the range and frequency of Biblical books, chapters, and verses with which he underscored, enriched, and even qualified the sound and sense of particular poems and prose tracts. They can understand his careful and discriminate applications of Biblical references, realizing that as poet and essayist, he sought a reasonable balance between the strict theological doctrines of the Word and the more modern discipline of his own literary imagination.
