Rethinking Milton studies : time present and time past by John T Shawcross( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This study looks at two opposite problems that face literary criticism. Scholarship of the past has frequently been iterated in the present without analyzing or corroborating interpretations or supposed "facts." Scholarship of the present may, therefore, rest on an unacceptable or erroneous basis. On the other hand, scholarship of the past has often been unknown in the present or just ignored, even though present-day criticism may be enhanced or developed or achieve greater cogency by knowledge of past critical evidence. Such matters are pursued here as they impinge in certain areas of the life and work of John Milton."--BOOK JACKET
The development of Milton's thought : law, government, and religion by John T Shawcross( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"With this pioneering book, John T. Shawcross debunks a common assumption about what we see in Milton's work: that Milton's views remained unchanged over time. Shawcross systematically analyzes this belief in light of Milton's vocation, social life, politics, and religion, and presents us with a Milton who, indeed, changes his mind." "Shawcross's presentation of a Milton whose thought does actually develop and change - albeit with an unbending belief that faith and God supervene - is an essential contribution to Milton scholarship. In addition to its relevance to Milton scholars, the text will be of interest to cultural and church historians, theologians, and students of the seventeenth century."--BOOK JACKET

The uncertain world of Samson Agonistes by John T Shawcross( Book )
6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Milton's dramatic poem Samson Agonistes is rich with ambiguities and here Professor Shawcross proposes that they are intentional: the actual words, the dates of composition, the genre and the characters - particularly Samson and Dalila but also Manoa, Harapha, and the Chorus. Ambiguity also lies in Milton's presentation of political issues both philosophical and practical, his treatment of gender concepts, the constant questioning of the reader, and the poem's effect. Discussing all these elements, Shawcross follows with a detailed reading of the text which argues that it remains purposefully ambiguous, reflecting Milton's own recognition of the uncertainty of the content, and suggesting that Milton himself would question some of the 'solutions' that modern scholarship has offered in the last two decades."--Jacket
