Barbarous dissonance and images of voice in Milton's epics : Elizabeth Sauer
A multivocal, transhistorical approach to "Paradise Lost" and "Paradise Regained". The author argues that Milton's epics accommodate a variety of interpretive voices, episodes, and dramatic and discursive exchanges that resist the monological containment of the poems' dominant narratives.
