About this book

Imagining Death in Spenser and Milton assembles a collection of essays on the compelling topic of death in two monumental representatives of the early modern canon, Edmund Spenser and John Milton. The volume draws its impetus from the conviction that death is a central, yet curiously understudied, preoccupation for Spenser and Milton, contending that death - in all its early modern reformations and deformations - is an indispensable backdrop for any attempt to articulate the relationship between Spenser and Milton.

Reviews

'This... is a compelling and cutting-edge collection, replete with arguments that go to the heart of the cult and culture of death as depicted in the complex works of two major canonical authors, each corpus dissected with exquisite patience and expertise' - Professor Willy Maley, Department of English Literature, University of Glasgow
