All the Names in Heaven: A Reference Guide to Milton's Supernatural Names and Epic Similes

Hardback
All the Names in Heaven lists and highlights more than 2200 names and nearly 250 similes that appear in each book of Milton's epic. Divided into three sections, this volume offers readers a comprehensive overview of the names and similes, including the number and percentages for each type. Isitt catalogs all the names in Paradise Lost, listed book by book, as well as chapters devoted exclusively to one name (i.e. the Son, the Father) as well. Tables illustrate the number of similes, the types of similes, speakers who use the similes, and the number of similes that occur in each location, such as Heaven or Hell.
