Full Description

Traditional approaches to understanding sublimity and skepticism have often asserted the primacy and importance of one concept over the other. In "Sublimity and Skepticism in Montaigne and Milton", however, David Sedley argues that literary and philosophical notions of skepticism and sublimity, in fact, simultaneously developed and influenced one another. He illuminates this theory with carefully chosen selections from two eccentric, yet typical, Renaissance writers: Montaigne and Milton. Examining the text of Montaigne's "Journal de voyage" and "Essais", and Milton's "Comus" and "Paradise Lost", Sedley exposes the Renaissance impulse behind the modern career of sublimity. Sedley's work will be of particular interest to intellectual historians, literary theorists and philosophers.
