. will ensure that Milton s prose continuesto challenge and reward the kind of active, discerning readershipthat Milton himself courted.
(Renaissance Quarterly, 1 July 2014)
"Milton′s extraordinary prose, extensively represented in DavidLoewenstein′s ambitious edition, has gained many new readers inrecent years, and it may be true that some students, at least inBritish schools and universities, read Tenure of Kings andMagistrates before, or even instead of, the greatpoetry."
Times Literary Supplement (June 14 2013)
David Loewenstein s scrupulous editionoffers a remarkably generous range of Milton s prose works onreligion, politics, and domestic issues. The Prefatory Notes toeach work are a model of clarity and concision, and annotations areprecise and informative. The volume will be a wonderful resourcefor Milton scholars, teachers, and studentsalike. Laura Knoppers, Editor, MiltonStudies
"Richly annotated and with a fine, purposeful introduction,this wholly new edition makes available ten major prose works byMilton in their entirety, together with generous selections fromMilton′s other tracts. No other edition allows the reader toappreciate so fully Milton′s original engagement with concepts ofpolitical, religious, and domestic liberty. It is the best editionfor teaching purposes and the general reader. Scholars too willappreciate the wealth of fresh annotations." Thomas N.Corns, University of Wales, Bangor
"This is the most ambitious one–volume edition of Milton sprose to date, one that both invites the general reader who iscurious about the author of Paradise Lost, andthat also satisfies the needs of classrooms. Readers willhave at their fingertips works from across Milton s writingcareer, with its wide range of occasions and styles. We seethe scrappy polemicist, the rhetorically powerful tyrannicide, thecritic and participant in religious reform, a Milton who was alwaysdaring, witty and engaged. With crisp prefatory introductionsto each work, helpful annotations, and a generous introduction tothe whole, there is no better guide to Milton s prosetreasures than this one. I will be eager to assign this tostudents." Sharon Achinstein, University ofOxford
