Milton's places of hope spiritual and political connections of hope with land
Mary C. Fenton (Author)
Analyzes how Milton sees hope as bound both to the spiritual and the material, the internal self and the external world. This book demonstrates that hope comes from commitment to literal places such as the land, ideological places such as the "nation," and sacred, interior places such as the human soul.
