MEDIA REVIEWS

"The Empty Garden examines the twin poems of Milton's 1671 volume . . . . It is a brave and ambitious book which sends the patient reader back to school. . . . Rushdy makes a strong case for Milton's defense of ethical individualism as a political position that mattered in the late 17th century in England and continues to matter in the culture wars of our time and place."
"--Seventeenth-Century News"


"Rushdy has written an ambitious, widely-ranging, and complicated study. . . . "The Empty Garden" is a learned, challenging, and provocative book. . . . [It] substantially deepens and complicates our understanding of the 1671 volume."

" Essays in Criticism""


It is full of interesting ideas and brimming with enthusiasm. Rushdy makes important claims for John Milton as a political philosopher (comparable with Hobbes) and religious-cultural critic of the first order. . . . Another virtue of Rushdy s study is the close attention the author pays to Milton s words. . . . Certainly it is a stimulating study, even if it stimulates one to disagree. But it would be rewarding to argue with Ashraf Rushdy. I believe that John Milton would agree.
