La pensée de Milton. Paris, Alcan, 1920.

[ocr errors]

Les sources anglaises de la pensée de Milton" [on the Mortalists]. (In Revue germanique, October, 1921.) "Milton et le Zohar." (In Revue germanique, January, 1922; in English, in The Quest, January, 1922, and in Studies in Philology, April, 1922.)

"La Cabale et la philosophie de Milton." (In Revue des études juives, September, 1921.)

The chapter on Fludd is entirely new; and of the rest, much is revised, particularly the section on the Mortalists.

I therefore give here, besides the analysis of Milton's thought contained in my previous book, the results of my subsequent attempt to solve the problem of the origin of this thought.

Bordeaux, 1924.
