The Cambridge companion to Milton by Dennis Richard Danielson( Book )

66 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 2,144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An accessible, helpful guide for any student of Milton, whether undergraduate or graduate, introducing readers to the scope of Milton's work, the richness of its historical relations, and the range of current approaches to it. This second edition contains several new and revised essays, reflecting increasing emphasis on Milton's politics, the social conditions of his authorship and the climate in which his works were published and received, a fresh sense of the importance of his early poems and Samson Agonistes, and the changes wrought by gender studies on the criticism of the previous decade. By contrast with other introductions to Milton, this Companion gathers an international team of scholars, whose informative, stimulating and often argumentative essays will provoke thought and discussion in and out of the classroom. The Companion's reading lists and extended bibliography offer readers the necessary tools for further informed exploration of Milton studies

Milton's good God : a study in literary theodicy by Dennis Richard Danielson( Book )

19 editions published between 1982 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few writers have achieved the synthesis of art and idea that was attained by John Milton in Paradise Lost. In that work the poet addressed one of the most important questions in philosophy and religion: How could God, if he is omnipotent and wholly good, have made a world in which there is so much evil? In this book Professor Danielson examines Paradise Lost, focusing on Milton's treatment of creation, chaos, predestination, free will, God's foreknowledge, the Fall of Man and the nature of human existence before the Fall. The author thereby not only lays a systematic foundation for understanding Milton's defence of the creator's justice and goodness but also explores how the literary character of that defence gives it a unique human vitality, dramatic consistency and logical coherence. Milton's Good God is an interdisciplinary study, which will lead the student of literature to a deeper appreciation of Paradise Lost while drawing the student of ideas to a fuller awareness of the importance of Milton's work for the fields of philosophy, theology and intellectual history
The first Copernican : Georg Joachim Rheticus and the rise of the Copernican Revolution by Dennis Richard Danielson( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though no one could have known it at the time, this action changed the course of civilization. Without the intervention of the young mathematician, Copernicus's seminal work would likely have sunk into oblivion; instead, it ushered in a new understanding of the physical universe, and today is acclaimed as a landmark of scientific and cultural history. The First Copernican is the first popular account of the life of Georg Joachim Rheticus - Copernican muse, founder of modern trigonometry, and champion of new science at the threshold of the modern world. Dennis Danielson's biography provides a prism through which the dawn of the Copernican Revolution shines in fresh and illuminating ways, revealing the intense curiosity and singular community from which science itself took flight. Book jacket. Includes information on geometry, harmony, Martin Luther, mathematics, Ptolemy, etc
Paradise lost and the cosmological revolution by Dennis Richard Danielson( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume brings John Milton's Paradise Lost into dialogue with the challenges of cosmology and the world of Galileo, whom Milton met and admired: a universe encompassing space travel, an earth that participates vibrantly in the cosmic dance, and stars that are 'world[s] / Of destined habitation'. Milton's bold depiction of our universe as merely a small part of a larger multiverse allows the removal of hell from the center of the earth to a location in the primordial abyss. In this wide-ranging work, Dennis Danielson lucidly unfolds early modern cosmological debates, engaging not only Galileo but also Copernicus, Tycho, Kepler, and the English Copernicans, thus placing Milton at a rich crossroads of epic poetry and the history of science"--

Paradise Lost has long been hailed as one of the most compelling stories of all time. Its cosmic canvas--heaven, hell, chaos, and the Garden of Eden--has enthralled thousands of readers for more than three centuries. For others, however, it has remained an unopened treasure because of the perceived difficulty of its archaic vocabulary and poetic structure
