The Astronomy of Milton's 'Paradise Lost'

The Astronomy of Milton's 'Paradise Lost' Summary

Many able and cultured writers have delighted to expatiate on the beauties of Milton’s ‘Paradise Lost, ’ and to linger with admiration over the lofty utterances expressed in his poem. Though conscious of his inability to do justice to the sublimest of poets and the noblest of sciences, the author has ventured to contribute to Miltonic literature a work which he hopes will prove to be of an interesting and instructive character. Perhaps the choicest passages in the poem are associated with astronomical allusion, and it is chiefly to the exposition and illustration of these that this volume is devoted.
