Synopsis

This volume contains a selection of essays presented at the 8th International Milton Symposium, "Milton, Rights and Liberties", which was held in Grenoble, France, 7-11 June 2005. It was the first time ever that such a major event was organized in France, hence the volume's title. Moreover, Milton's writings influenced key figures of the French Revolution. The essays presented in this volume were written by emerging as well as confirmed Milton scholars from around the world. Topics range from Romanticism (Milton and Wordsworth) to a psychoanalytic reading of Milton, from the iconography of the garden in Paradise Lost to the prosody of Samson Agonistes, from Derridean readings of Milton to Milton's presence in Brazil and China. Another volume of essays entitled Milton, Rights and Liberties was published in 2007.
