"Flannagan is eminently qualified to explain the greatness of English poet John Milton - and he's marvelously successful in achieving his goal[...]Fresh, fluent and witty, Flannagan's treatment is thoroughly informed by the insights of current literary insights and is rendered without jargon." Library Journal <!--end-->

"This is historically informed criticism delivered with a light and generally assured touch and, most successfully, Flannagan retains a clear focus on disclosing what is remarkable about Milton, what makes him worth the modern readers' attention … Flannagan has produced a helpful, lively - and intelligently illustrated - little book, to which students may with confidence be directed."
