Not much discussion of Milton¹s poetry here lately. What are people¹s
reactions to these points?

³Abdiel is a decidedly mixed character‹he did follow Satan initially; he is
capable of an interior monologue, a mark of fallen subjectivity; and he is
more zealous than brilliant in his argument with his fallen general. If
there is Miltonic representation here it is fractured and self-critical.²

--Ann Baynes Coiro, review of Stephen Fallon¹s new book in latest MQ.
