There has not been a major book-length study of Milton's Maske in the past twenty years, so Lady in the Labyrinth fills a major gap in Milton and Renaissance criticism. It comprehensively surveys, evaluates, and integrates recent and traditional criticism of Comus in the context of Milton's other work, while developing new directions for study, focusing anthropological and psychological analysis on the poem's characters and mythological dimensions. Parallels between the ritual elements of the Maske and the rites of passage of non-European cultures will widen the horizons of both canonically based and multiculturally engaged scholars and writers. The book's study of Milton's identification with his female hero, and his advocacy of women's ethical, sexual, and political autonomy, gives a jolt to ongoing debates about Milton and feminism.Beaumont, Francis: The Maida#39;s Tragedy, 162 Behn, Aphra: aquot;The Disappointment, aquot; 309-1 On. 60 Belsey, Catherine, 281 n. 11, 282 nn. 17, 21 ... 57 Borges, Jorge Luis: aquot;Pierre Menard, Author of Don Quixote, aquot; 28 In. 14 Botticelli, Sandro: Primavera, 265-67, 269, 270, 327 n. ... 4; installation as Lord President of the Council of Wales and the West Marches of, 15, 17, 51, 68, 103, 104, 236, 254, 277, 317-18n.
