The Tyranny of Heaven: Milton's Rejection of God as King

By Michael Bryson | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

I WANT TO THANK REGINA SCHWARTZ FOR HER INVALUABLE SUPPORT at all stages of the research and writing process; Michael Lieb for his guidance on Milton's use of scripture; and Christina Traina for her questions about Milton's relations to larger theological traditions. I also want to thank Peter Herman for his interest in and encouragement of this project, as well as David Loewenstein, Helen Marlborough, Richard Strier, and other members of the Chicago Newberry Library Milton seminar for an intellectual atmosphere that stimulated many of the questions this book asks.

Most importantly, to my wife, Carrie Bourque, and to my family (Robert Bryson, Naomi Vecchiarelli, Heather Bryson, and Lance Wolstrup) and friends (Jennifer Bortman, Donna Kain, Peat Burnett, Kimberly Segall, John Martin, Brian Artese, Charlotte Artese, Chris Hager, Erin Redfern, Anne Sullivan, Bobbie Saltzman, Mary Serochi, and Bill Curtis): for reasons too numerous to recount here, this book would not exist without your love and support. Thank you.
