<i>A New Companion to Milton</i> builds on the critically-acclaimed original, bringing alive the diverse and controversial world of contemporary Milton studies while reflecting the very latest advances in research in the field. The <i>Companion</i> explores literary production and cultural ideologies, issues of politics, gender and religion, individual Milton texts, and relevant contemporary texts and responses to Milton over time. <br /><br />Extensively revised and updated to reflect the most recent research, this new edition also conveys the excitement of recent developments through the addition of eight original essays, each of which engages closely with Milton's poetic oeuvre. It now includes a new section exploring Milton's global impact in China, India, Japan, Korea, in Spanish-speaking American and the Arab-speaking world, along with a chronology which sets Milton's life and work in the context of his age. The result is a thoroughly wide-ranging Companion that offers a balance between critical<br />readings and historical and cultural context.
