Average wear and rubbing to jacket; tiny rips. Pages bright; binding tight. Good reading / research copy. 231 pages; Index. Language: English. 'Amusing as he can be, the author is serious enough in scoring the basic foolishness of the whole impressive apparatus of crypto-scholarship. The overloaded allegory, the endless probing into the background of Milton's imagery, the wearying concern with tangential aspect of the poet's work [are] . . . the types of Milton criticism that have threatened to obscure more than they elucidate. ... [A] good-natured expose of the new criticism....'--from jacket flap. Keywords: literary criticism, Miltonian scholar, Paradise Lost, Comus, Richard Bentley, William Empson, 1950s, 50s, Fifties.
