The Temptation Motif in John Milton
Preston, Brian Ellis
MetadataShow full item record
My emphas1s cannot be on specific theological disputes. In Milton there are many, arising out of the controversial natures of his subjects. Such disputes are discussed by Miss Pope and Mr. Krouse, who give adequate suggestions for further study in each topical area. I shall rather be concerned with the general nature of the temptation motif in Milton and how it relates to his readers, to his works, and especially to Samson Agonistes.
