Samuel Johnson is often represented as primarily antagonistic or antipathetic to Milton. Yet his imaginative and intellectual engagement with Milton's life and writing extended across the entire span of his own varied writing career. As essayist, poet, lexicographer, critic and biographer - above all as reader - Johnson developed a controversial, fascinating and productive literary relationship with his powerful predecessor. To understand how Johnson creatively appropriates Milton's texts, how he critically challenges yet also confirms Milton's status, and how he constructs him as a biographical subject, is to deepen the modern reader's understanding of both writers in the context of historical continuity and change. Christine Rees's insightful study will be of interest not only to Milton and Johnson specialists, but to all scholars of early modern literary history and biography.

Book Description:

Johnson's Milton explores the response of one great English literary figure, Samuel Johnson, to another, John Milton. Combining close analysis of Johnson's allusion to Milton with an account of Johnson's complicated and controversial attitude to Milton, this innovative book is an important contribution to the study of both writers.

About the Author:

Christine Rees is Visiting Senior Research Fellow at King's College London.
