The aim of this study is to make the case that Milton's Invocations should be recognized as central because, "they present most directly and most intimately the crucial event of man's spiritual life: responsive action taken to bring about renovation. The invocations involve us in the task of the poet's 'advent'rous Song,' for that action is a paradigm of our own 'advent'rous Song,' by which we create 'th' upright heart and pure.'"
