Thanks for your reply, JD. I'll admit that I'm not entirely clear what you mean by your statement, so please forgive my interpretive limitations. Perhaps your basic point is that Milton scholarship should be more proactive than reactive, and I absolutely agree with that. At the same time, when scholars put forward arguments that can't be backed up by the texts in question, and those arguments are put forward in misleading and perhaps even demeaning ways, I think those scholars and their tactics need to be called out.
