John Milton's Paradise Lost has been the subject of many texts. Like many authors who have previously published materials about this celebrated epic, Larry Isitt felt compelled to pursue the mystery of Milton's "anti-Biblical" style, while unearthing his theology at the same time. Isitt's efforts resulted in All the Names in Heaven, a carefully compiled list of the names and similes contained in Paradise Lost.

All the Names in Heaven lists and highlights more than 2200 names and nearly 250 similes that appear in each book of Milton's epic. Divided into three sections, this volume offers readers a comprehensive overview of the names and similes, including the number and percentages for each type. Isitt catalogs all the names in Paradise Lost, listed book by book, as well as chapters devoted exclusively to one name (i.e. the Son, the Father) as well. Tables illustrate the number of similes, the types of similes, speakers who use the similes, and the number of similes that occur in each location, such as Heaven or Hell.

A quick and convenient tool for accessing particular information, scholars and students of literature and theology alike will find this work a valuable checklist, finding tool, and research aid.

About the Author:

Larry R. Isitt, Ph.D. has published numerous articles and papers on various subjects in 17th, 18th, and 19th century English literature, including "Milton's Heretical God: Nicea and Arianism in Book III of Paradise Lost" and "Bright Eminence: Milton's Poetics and Theology as Revealed Through Character Names in Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained."

Review:

This useful compilation lists in section 1 a complete catalogue of names of deities and demons (and Adam and Eve) in Paradise Lost by book, then listed by character in Paradise Lost, Paradise Regained, Samson Agonistes, and the Nativity Ode. Section 3 lists epic and simple similes in Paradise Lost arranged by book. (American Reference Books Annual)

...suggests useful hypotheses...wide-ranging... (Milton Quarterly)

Isitt's book is indeed a valuable resource, not only for scholars debating the Arian nature of Milton's epic, but for any reader desiring to investigate the implications of Milton's names for the epic's various characters...This book also will aid classroom teaching on a number of levels and should prove a beneficial tool for student essays on Paradise Lost. (Seventeenth-Century News)
