|Title:||The Art of Logic and Paradise Lost: An Argument, Milton's Own Theory of Logic Put Into Actual Practice In His Epic Poem|
|Authors:||Hartig, Joseph John|
|Keywords:||English Language and Literature;English Language and Literature|
|Abstract:||<p>The idea that there is a connection between Milton's theory of logic and his writings is not a new one. However, an investigation into this idea in regard to Milton's most renowned work, Paradise Lost, has been sadly neglected. Some scholars do refer to the epic poem, but either superficially or unsystematically. This thesis is intended as a corrective for this neglect.</p> <p>My thesis treats the first part of logic, "invention", in rather extensive detail in connection with Paradise Lost. The second part of logic, "disposition", is treated in only minor detail -- a treatment of "disposition", in itself, could generate a thesis. Nevertheless, my thesis should be a concrete demonstration that the elements in John Milton's Art of Logic, for both "invention" and "disposition", were applied by Milton, wisely and with careful detail, to his greatest work of poetry.</p>|
