"Hammond is prudently alert to classical echo in Milton from Virgil, Horace, and others, approaching Milton's prolific Latin writings with unusual subtlety and grace, adding an often-missed but vital literary context for Milton's political engagements. Written in a sprightly style, the book integrates well scholarship in Milton studies, and the format of the book is pleasing to the eye and hand and will provide a compact and indispensible guide to the question." -- Modern Philology
