Nigel Smith, Times Literary Supplement To describe it as 'fine grained' would be an understatement ... Leonard is one of the greatest Milton scholars working today.

M. S. Stephenson, Choice The chapter on Milton's universe is a superior critical monograph in its own right. No one should attempt to study Milton without reference to Leonard's study.

Karen Edwards, The Seventeenth Century Faithful Labourers is a monumental achievement of scholarship ... As a close reader of Milton's poem, Leonard is without equal. . . The forthright, idiomatic vigour of his style, leavened with wit and playfulness, might well provide the model for a new kind of academic writing.

Dave Harper, Muse*less these volumes deserve to be on any serious Miltonists bookshelf.

David Hopkins, Notes and Queries Faithful Labourers is one of the most sustainedly informative and carefully pondered single-authored academic books on Milton's Paradise Lost ever to have been published.

Feisal Mohamed, Renaissance Quarterly the most impressive work of Milton scholarship since William Riley Parker's 1968 biography.
