Milton's Prosody (book)

Milton's Prosody, or in full, Milton's Prosody, with a chapter on Accentual Verse and Notes is a book by Robert Bridges. It was first published by Oxford University Press in 1889, and a final revised edition was published in 1921.

Bridges begins with a detailed empirical analysis of the blank verse of Paradise Lost, and then examines the changes in Milton's practice in his later poems Paradise Regained and Samson Agonistes. A third section deals with 'obsolete mannerisms'. The final section of the book presents a new system of prosody for accentual verse.

Famous quotes containing the word milton:

    Lift not thy spear against the Muses’ bower:
    The great Emathian conqueror bid spare
    The house of Pindarus, when temple and tower
    Went to the ground; and the repeated air
    Of sad Electra’s poet had the power
    To save the Athenian walls from ruin bare.
    —John Milton (1608–1674)
