A portion of chapter 1 appeared in volume 10 of the Ben Jonson Journal, nearly the whole of chapter 5 was printed in the March 2004 Milton Quarterly, and a part of chapter 4 was published in English Language Notes. I wish to thank these journals for their kind permission to reprint the essays. viii ...
