9780521177290: Remembering and Repeating: Biblical Creation in Paradise Lost

As a reinterpretation of Milton, this study engages the ideas of Freud, Nietzsche, and Derrida. However, the author derives her thesis from Milton's own debt to ancient Biblical sources. The Bible, says Schwartz, offers Milton a pattern of repeated beginnings that informs his depiction of the universe and characterizes his poetic and interpretative processes. This original reading of the Bible enables a powerful rereading of Paradise Lost.

Book Description:

While Milton's inability to discover a privileged origin allies him with postmodernism - and so this study, originally published in 1988, engages thinkers like Freud, Nietzsche, Derrida, and Lacan - that insight is far more ancient. According to Regina Schwartz, the Bible offers Milton his pattern of repeated beginnings.

Review:

"An original study of a neglected aspect of the poem."--Louis Martz

"...a brilliant study that quiety but powerfully recharacterizes many of the contexts of discussion in Milton critism. Particularly noteworthy is Schwartz's ability to introduce advanced theoretical perspectives without ever taking the focus of attention away from the dynamics and problematics of Milton's poem."--Stanley Fish

"...a fascinating and provocative book." Virginia R. Mollenkott, Christianity and Literature

"In a time when much of literary criticism is steeped in a mimicry of fashionable -isms, it is both refreshing and enlightening to see an insightful study such as Remembering and Repeating: Biblical Creation in Paradise Lost." David Patterson, Milton Quarterly

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Despite Milton s preoccupation with origins, these elude him: his creation stories are always mediated. Even the creation of the universe is not depicted as a single event that occurred once and for all time in a distant past; instead, world-order must be perpetually reasserted, before the ever present threat of chaos. That description of Milton s universe also applies to his other creation, the poem, where the chaos that forever threatens is the abyss of interpretation. Milton s creations are not asserted despite this threat, but because of it; that is, chaos does not simply threaten to undo order, for chaos inheres in it. While Milton s inability to discover a privileged origin allies him with postmodernism - and so this study, originally published in 1988, engages thinkers like Freud, Nietzsche, Derrida, and Lacan - that insight is far more ancient. According to Regina Schwartz, the Bible offers Milton his pattern of repeated beginnings. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780521177290
