Reviews

. will ensure that Milton s prose continuesto challenge and reward the kind of active, discerning readershipthat Milton himself courted. (Renaissance Quarterly, 1 July 2014) "Milton's extraordinary prose, extensively represented in DavidLoewenstein's ambitious edition, has gained many new readers inrecent years, and it may be true that some students, at least inBritish schools and universities, read Tenure of Kings andMagistrates before, or even instead of, the greatpoetry." Times Literary Supplement (June 14 2013)
