Description: From the Carmina Elegiaca to Paradise Regained and Samson Agonistes, Milton's poems invariably depict the decisive instant in a story, a moment of crisis that takes place just before the action undergoes a dramatic change of course. Martin Evans identifies this moment of transition as "the Miltonic moment".

This provocative new study focuses on three early poems: On the Morning of Christ's Nativity, A Mask Presented at Ludlow Castle (Comus), and Lycidas. These texts share a distinctive perceptual and cognitive structure characteristically Miltonic.

According to Evans, Milton's poems communicate a profound sense of intermediacy because they seem to take place between the boundaries that separate events. They look backward to a past that is about to be superseded or repudiated and forward to a future that will soon begin to unfold.
