About this title


From Preface, "This is not the first work to be addressed to the concept of matrimony in Milton, nor, considering its limitations, could one wish it to be the last. It is mainly concerned with a special question-the extent to which the ideal of matrimony in Milton's divorce tracts is embodied in Paradise Lost. But it also attempts to reveal in what way Milton's tracts accept, deny, modify, or exploit popular, and especially "Puritan," notions of the marriage relationship. Close attention is paid to the wavering correspondences between word and concept in the practical literature of marriage, the best surviving indication of popular attitudes. Such a study of Milton's tracts against the popular background has implications for the reading of Paradise Lost, since one has learned before approaching the poem both Milton's explicit theoretical positions in the ethical controversy which lay behind the passages dealing with marriage and something of the spirit in which those passages must have been received by Milton's audience.
