Approaches to Teaching Milton's Paradise Lost

second edition

This second edition of Approaches to Teaching Milton's Paradise Lost addresses Milton in the light of the digital age, new critical approaches to his poem, and his continued presence in contemporary culture. It aims to help instructors enliven the teaching of Paradise Lost and address the challenges presented to students by the poem—the early modern syntax and vocabulary, the political and theological contexts, and the abounding classical references.

The first part of the volume, "Materials," evaluates the many available editions of the poem, points to relevant reference works, recommends additional reading, and outlines useful audiovisual and online aids for teaching Milton's epic poem. The essays in the second part, "Approaches," are grouped by several themes: literary and historical contexts, characters, poetics, critical approaches, classrooms, and performance. The essays cover epic conventions and literary and biblical allusions, new approaches such as ecocriticism and masculinity studies, and reading Milton on the Web, among other topics.

Reviews

"This is an exemplary anthology of essays, all of them anchored in pedagogical concerns." — Joseph Wittreich, Graduate Center, City University of New York


"While the essays are frequently addressed to experienced scholars and teachers of Milton, most are diligent about making their arguments accessible and useful to those teaching his epic for the first time. . . . [T]he very best essays develop pedagogical frameworks that could potentially animate and structure entire lectures, discussions, or even semesters. . . . A number of essays compress a voluminous body of research into a compact form geared toward classroom discussion and lecture. . . . [The volume] is a fine representation of the diversity of current Milton pedagogy, rules by no orthodoxy, unified solely in its desire to produce new generations of readers excited to ask questions of Milton's great epic and discover new answers."

—Daniel Shore, Milton Quarterly
