Published annually by Duquesne University Press as an important forum for Milton scholarship and criticism, Milton Studies focuses on various aspects of John Milton’s life and writing, including biography; literary history; Milton’s work in its literary, intellectual, political, or cultural contexts; Milton’s influence on or relationship to other writers; and the history of critical response to his work. 

The 11 essays in Milton Studies 54 offer new and groundbreaking perspectives on topics of current scholarly interest. Contributors examine Milton’s angelic narrators, Adam’s nativity and vitalism, Miltonic authorship, gender, and music in Comus, satanic self-fashioning, Areopagitica and religion in the public sphere, Edenic worship and iconoclasm, the process of theology in De doctrina Christiana, Milton’s reworking of epic hospitality, Limbo and the Lucretian swerve, and early black women writers’ uses of Milton.
