9780674035096: Delirious Milton: The Fate of the Poet in Modernity

Composed after the collapse of his political hopes, Milton's great poems Paradise Lost, Paradise Regained, and Samson Agonistes are an effort to understand what it means to be a poet on the threshold of a post-theological world. The argument of Delirious Milton, inspired in part by the architectural theorist Rem Koolhaas's Delirious New York, is that Milton's creative power is drawn from a rift at the center of his consciousness over the question of creation itself. This rift forces the poet to oscillate deliriously between two incompatible perspectives, at once affirming and denying the presence of spirit in what he creates. From one perspective the act of creation is centered in God and the purpose of art is to imitate and praise the Creator. From the other perspective the act of creation is centered in the human, in the built environment of the modern world. The oscillation itself, continually affirming and negating the presence of spirit, of a force beyond the human, is what Gordon Teskey means by delirium. He concludes that the modern artist, far from being characterized by what Benjamin (after Baudelaire) called "loss of the aura," is invested, as never before, with a shamanistic spiritual power that is mediated through art.

From the Inside Flap:

In this compelling account of divine Creation and human creativity, Gordon Teskey has brought Milton into modernity. Whether creative processes are closer to hallucinations or delirium, they are informed throughout by a spirituality that defies dogma. This book is an important contribution to Milton studies as well as to the rich discourse, from Plato to Heidegger, on the creative process itself.

About the Author:

Gordon Teskey is Professor of English, Harvard University, and editor of the Norton Critical Edition of Milton’s Paradise Lost.
