Occasionally there emerges a book which has an influence farbeyond its original intended audience. Hardy and Carrithers'"Milton and the Hermeneutic Journey" has clearly emerged as just such a work. Any work hailed as a 'landmark in intellectual history' must, to make such a claim, appeal to intelligences of varied casts and backgrounds. This work passes that test. Any reasonable well-educated person will vibrate to Hardy and Carrithers' intricate argument. This defining work is the hallmark of a superior paradigm and is a resounding success!
