Authors to Themselves: Milton and the Revelation of History
Available from more sellers
Paperback. 256 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.2in. x 0.8in.Grossman examines the narrative form of Paradise Lost to discover Miltons thoroughly modern concept of self. Banished from paradise, the epic poems protagonists become authors to themselves in allBoth what they judge and what they choose, left to create their own story in relation to the story already written by God. Grossman believes the resulting structure of the poem must be understood in the context of seventeenth-century historical and theological developments, specifically Bacons notion of history as progress and Protestant theologys notion of the inner voice. The book draws upon recent works in hermeneutics and analytic history to develop the argument that there is a common structure to the experience of time in action and in narrative. In developing this thesis, Grossman draws on the work Stephen Greenblatt, Ricoeur, Todorov, Genette, Derrida, and Lacan to construct an original reading of Paradise Lost that will fascinate Miltonists, specialists in seventeenth-century literature, and readers concerned with narrative theory.
