| Book Description: |
This reading of Milton juxtaposes the poet's theology and Freud's account of the Oedipus complex in ways that yield both new understanding of Milton and a model for psychoanalytic interpretation of literature. In a commanding demonstration, Kerrigan delineates how the great epic and the psyche of its author bestow meaning on each other.
