Description

John Milton (1608-1674) is often regarded as one of England's greatest poets, second only to Shakespeare. Best known for his magnum opus <i>Paradise Lost</i>, Milton was also one of history's most politically active writers. A radical Protestant and staunch republican, he served as Latin secretary to Oliver Cromwell during the Commonwealth and throughout his life wrote eloquent treatises on topics including divorce, freedom of the press, kingship, and education. This extensive look at Milton's life and ethos addresses the psychological complexities and political tenets of the man who dared to put words in God's mouth, and whose life was spared following the restoration of the monarchy due only to his reputation as a poet.show more
