Paradise Lost: A Primer

The late Michael Cavanagh, professor emeritus of English, drafted an introduction to Paradise Lost that he worked on during the last decade of his life. His manuscript was in production at the time of his death in 2017. Scott Newstok ’95, one of Cavanagh’s students, edited the work and collaborated with Catholic University Press to bring it to print in 2020. The same press previously published Cavanagh’s study of Seamus Heaney, Professing Poetry: Seamus Heaney’s Poetics (2009).
