      Mr. Bulfinch does a wonderful job in making a collective account of stories for most of the entities he covers, including several excerpts from poets, historians, Milton, Homer, as well as his own brother and many more. Traversing from Greek and Roman to Hindu and Celtic and beyond, this is a great book for any mythology lover.

The Royal Shakespeare Company has been putting on a sold-out version of Comus, the first of Miltons major works, at the indoor theatre named after Sam play is, in fact, a masque, which is an allegorical or pastoral drama with music, as a precursor to opera.

There has not been a major book-length study of Milton's Maske in the past twenty years, so Lady in the Labyrinth fills a major gap in Milton and Renaissance criticism.

It comprehensively surveys, evaluates, and integrates recent and traditional criticism of Comus in the context of Milton's other work, while developing new directions for study, focusing anthropological and psychological.

The idea of an interpretant proposed by Charles Sanders Peirce and the semiotic relations theorized by Jorgen Dines Johansen work as a lens that enables the reader to see the extent to which Milton recreated the Orpheus myth and used its recreating powers in his poems.

Milton abounds in similar allusions. The short poem "Comus" contains more than thirty such, and the ode "On the Morning of the Nativity" half as many.

Though Milton makes good use of the Circe myth in two of his early Elegies and in Paradise Lost, he treats the myth most elaborately and extensively in Comus, which is not merely the longest English masque of the Early Modern Period; it is without question the best.

Though Milton did not invent the character of Comus, he invented worthy. In John Miltons poetic work of the same name, Comus is an enchanter, the son of Circe, who, like her, attempts to seduce travelers. Like many of Miltons other works, Comus contrasts the grossness of temporal life and the jarring discord of sin with the eternity and harmony of heaven and good.

The fifth essay focuses on Milton’s adaptation of the beatitudes from Matthew’s Gospel, notably in Eve’s lyric to Adam in Book IV of Paradise Lost.
