There is not a single point of religious, political, aesthetic, sexual or psychological controversy that has not divided interpreters of "Paradise Lost" in the three centuries since its publication'; so much so that the poem makes us think again about the stability of facts and truth. Richard Bradford contextualizes John Milton's poem biographically and historically; explores it Book by Book; and surveys in detail the work of the poem's critics, from the Romantics to the Poststructuralists. He aims to make "Paradise Lost" accessible and challenging to students, and suggests possibilities and alternative solutions to questions of "What did Milton mean?".
