This work undertakes to remove a misconception prevailing during the past one hundred and eighty-four years among Milton scholars and the historians of English literature in regard to Milton’s relation to Du Bartas. It presents evidence as to details of language and thought, as to structure, and as to philosophical intentions, upon which is based the conclusion that Du Bartas is the most significant of the sources of Paradise Lost. It offers the student of Milton perhaps his best opportunity to follow Milton in his workshop transmuting his material under our very eyes.
