Milton and Republicanism Reviews

'This is a summary of the inconsistent - some might say incoherent - positionings that define Milton's intervention in the affairs and ideals of Interregnum politics. The thirteen essays in the present volume, Milton and Republicanism, make an important contribution to our understanding of the welter of conflict and commitment that is the world of Miltonic politics. This book also stands as the most visible evidence to date of the impact that recent British historians of mid-seventeenth-century England have made on the study, especially among literary scholars, of Milton's poetry and prose.' John Rogers, The Journal of English and Germanic Philology
'Milton and Republicanism ... deserves a warm welcome for at last bringing Milton studies fully in contact with ... developments in the history of political thought.' David Norbrook, The Times Literary Supplement
