Morton D. Paley


"What Paley does give us, first of all, is an informative introductory overview setting out biblical sources of apocalypse and millennium, 17th-century millenarianism in the English Revolution, catastrophist theory in writers like Thomas Burnet, and the gathering millennial excitement among 18th-century Illuminati and the Swedenborgians....Against this background of popular excitement, Paley reveals for the first time and in impressive detail the extraordinary diversity of the millenarianism in English Romantic poetry. He commands the full range of biblical references to apocalypse and millennium, and his close reading elucidates echoes of and allusions to biblical sources which saturate his poems. Paley is also concerned with ways in which the unstable linkages between apocalypse, millennium and contemporary history provided conceptual structure for the imagination. Some of these are startlingly appropriate to our own time.Morton D. Paley is the author of 'Apocalypse and Millennium in English Romantic Poetry', published 1999 under ISBN 9780198185000 and ISBN 0198185006.
