Toccoa Falls College professor, Dr. David Adkins was recently published in Milton Studies. Dr. Adkins is an Assistant Professor of English in his second year of teaching at TFC. His new article, “Raphael’s Homeric and Biblical Metamorphosis,” focuses on an episode in Book 5 in John Milton’s epic Paradise Lost, where the angel Raphael descends to warn Adam that Satan has escaped Hell and is at large in the garden. Its main argument is that Milton writes this episode as a polemic against the way Calvin and other reformed thinkers interpret marvelous events in the Scriptures, especially those involving the visible manifestations of spirits. Milton Studies is one of the top two journals that publish articles on Milton.

Congrats on this incredible accomplishment, Dr. Adkins!
