All the Names in Heaven: A Reference Guide to Milton's Supernatural Names and Epic Similes

Scarecrow Press, 2002 - 457 páginas
John Milton's Paradise Lost has been the subject of many texts. Like many authors who have previously published materials about this celebrated epic, Larry Isitt felt compelled to pursue the mystery of Milton's "anti-Biblical" style, while unearthing his theology at the same time. Isitt's efforts resulted in All the Names in Heaven, a carefully compiled list of the names and similes contained in Paradise Lost. All the Names in Heaven lists and highlights more than 2200 names and nearly 250 similes that appear in each book of Milton's epic. Divided into three sections, this volume offers readers a comprehensive overview of the names and similes, including the number and percentages for each type. Isitt catalogs all the names in Paradise Lost, listed book by book, as well as chapters devoted exclusively to one name (i.e. the Son, the Father) as well. Tables illustrate the number of similes, the types of similes, speakers who use the similes, and the number of similes that occur in each location, such as Heaven or Hell. A quick and convenient tool for accessing particular information, scholars and students of literature and theology alike will find this work a valuable checklist, finding tool, and research aid.
