[Milton-L] Milton & Pullman (and Blake and Lewis too)

I've noticed echoes of Milton in Jane Austen (and assume but don't actually know that something has been written on this).

Dear scholars,

It has been a long time since I have read Little Women. Could someone tell me about the direct connections to Milton and Blake?  Also, it seems like the text is very useful in undergraduate courses.  What makes it so? Very interesting.  I am teaching a freshman course for “at risk” undergraduates in a learning community that we have here at Purdue.  The course is called  “Coming of Age in the U.S.”  Although I have already drafted the syllabus, this may just be something I should include.

Adios,

Yes, vital to teach the whole of “Little Women,” I think. I do this in my Film, Text, and Culture course in tandem with three film adaptations. It’s a book with many surprises.
 I’d never thought of doing Milton, Bunyan, Blake, Alcott. “Songs of Innocence and Experience” and “Little Women” side by side? Could be v. interesting. Thanks for the idea.

Yes, Little Women is a wonderful text to teach in relation to Bunyan--and it always surprises students who are expecting a saccharine girls' book, especially if you do the whole thing: Little Women and Good Wives.--Margie

"Little Women" would make an interesting addition to this already fascinating module.

I've been teaching Pullman for the last few years in a module that runs from Milton, Bunyan and Blake, and it does make pedagogic sense as a little tradition.
