From the publisher

Echoes of Paradise: Milton's Epic and the Art of Response is a collection of original poems, music, and essays about the rich and lively afterlives of Paradise Lost, drawing attention to some of the many artistic forms on which Milton’s poem has left its mark: eighteenth-century satire, fantasy children’s fiction, slave narrative, Victorian painting, radio drama, dictaphones and white noise, and turn-of-the-millennium TV.

Poems by Jack Belloli, Michael Edwards, Sarah Howe, Helen Mort, Ruth Padel, & Rowan Williams.

Music by Edwin Hillier.

Essays by Edward Allen, Jean-Michaël Maugüé, Sophie Read, Christopher Ricks & Chris Townsend.
