About this title

Synopsis:

Milton's Comus: Family Piece by William B. Hunter, Jr. Whitston Publishing Company 1983

From the Publisher:

"This little book is mandatory reading for all students of 'Comus.' It collects a decade of Professor Hunter's work (some previously published, some not) on the historical and dramatic origins of the performance of 'Comus.' Its approach then sharply differs from the usual literary focus, and the results are most illuminating -- giving convicting historical answers for Milton's emphasis on chastity and, through a sound examination of the probabilities of staging and performance, the best discussion I have seen of the textual variants, particularly the transposed song (From the Heavens now I fly) of the 'Attendant Spirit.'--MEDIEVAL & RENAISSANCE DRAMA IN ENGLAND
