Futures of Enlightenment Poetry

Dustin D. Stewart

  • Develops a revisionist history of English poetry, and specifically the meditative long poem, from Milton to early Romanticism
  • Approaches the reading and writing of poetry as spiritual practice and a way of experiencing the future here and now
  • Offers extended interpretations of both major and minor poems, placing them in fresh historical, theoretical, and theological contexts
  • Contributes to ongoing debates about the role of religion in the Enlightenment
