But she is not without allies: twelve-year-old Will Parry, fleeing for his life after taking another's, has also stumbled into this strange new realm.

Scholars from various literary, philosophical, and theatrical fields address topics relevant to reading, studying, understanding the work, and its basis in Milton's Paradise Lost; the influence of science fiction on the series; issues of social class, religion, sexuality, and gender; and recent stage productions"--Provided by publisher.
