From the private collection of Richard Popkin, Professor of Philosophy Emeritus at UCLA. From the dust-jacket: "This volumes explores the philosophic activity of Paradise Lost, the epic's philosophizing itself, and submits it to basic analysis. Particular emphasis is placed on the poem's ontological ideas, with the discussion focusing upon existential problems related to thought, knowledge, time, and perception. This study is both an excursion into the phenomenology of Milton's ideas about reality and existence and an adventure in literary criticism."
