Is Eden real? The post-Christian consensus is 'no', but the senses in which it has been understood are perhaps no longer widely recognised. We will look at a range of major works by Dryden, Bunyan, Milton and Marvell, with a focus on how their beliefs about Eden manifest themselves in minutiae of form and style.
