Bryan Adams Hampton is the Dorothy and James D. Kennedy Distinguished Teaching Associate Professor of English at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
"Hampton's Fleshly Tabernacles is an interesting exposition
of how Milton's Christology shaped his reading, writing, and
politics. It focuses on the Incarnation as a central preoccupation
throughout Milton's oeuvre and how Incarnational thinking was
applied to such disparate realms as poetics, aesthetics,
hermeneutics, and economics. . . . Hampton's book can be praised
for its boldness, and the requisite command of the Miltonic corpus
required to sustain such a sweeping argument is impressive."
-Sixteenth Century Journal
"Fleshly Tabernacles is an important investigation of the Incarnation in Milton's thought and works and in revolutionary England, especially in the 1640s and 1650s. This is a learned, often powerful, and conceptually rich study of an important topic in its broad cultural context. Bryan Adams Hampton makes an original contribution to the field of seventeenth-century literary and religious studies." -- David Loewenstein, University of Wisconsin-Madison
