Description
 
This study examines the interplay of Latin and English in a selection of John Miltonís neo-Latin writings. It argues that this interplay is indicative of an inherent bilingualism that proceeds hand-in-hand with a self-fashioning that is bicultural in essence. Interlingual flexibility ultimately proved central to the poet of Paradise Lost, an epic uniquely characterized by its Latinate vernacular and its vernacular Latinitas. Author Estelle Haan (Sheehan) is Professor of English and Neo-Latin Studies at The Queenís University of Belfast. She is a well-known and well-respected Neo-Latinist who has published several volumes with the American Philosophical Society and has recently edited Miltonís Latin and Greek poetry for Oxford University Press.
