The first full-length study of the reception of John Milton’s (1608–74) writings in the Middle East, this book contributes to knowledge of the history, development, and ways in which early modern writings are read and understood by non-Anglophone readers. It analyses a range of literary and religious aspects of Milton’s writing in light of the cultural, theological, social, political, and linguistic contexts of the Arab world.

"Islam Issa is a rising star amongst scholars of the cultural interaction between the West and the Islamic world ... This book will be essential reading for ... anyone curious about the cultural aspect of relations between the West and the Middle East" (Prof. Gordon Campbell)

"Issa has produced a book that will become a must-read for years to come" (Prof. Edward Jones)

"This is genuinely important work, which makes a truly original contribution to knowledge. Most of it, indeed, is completely new ... Groundbreaking stuff" (Prof. Ewan Fernie)
