A Search for Meaning
Essay by David Boocker, "Milton and the Woman Controversy".
Collection edited by Paula Harms Payne.
In its exploration of drama, poetry, and prose, this collection of nine essays invites students, teachers, and scholars to rethink their evaluations of Shakespeare, Milton, Sidney, Jonson, and other British writers of the Early Modern period. Using a formalist approach,A Search for Meaning establishes new critical perspectives that are dependent on close readings of the text and current secondary research and which carefully consider reader’s reactions.
