This book focuses on specific moments of deliberated decision in the epic poems of Ariosto, Tasso, Spenser, and Milton. By exploring the difference between Aristotle's notion of proairesis and structuralist literary critics' use of the term, the author argues that decision making provides a link between ethical structures and narrative forms.
