John Milton (1608-1674)
This page provides an index to my essays about John Milton, the 17th century English poet, essayist, theologian and civil servant. Though primarily focused on an exposition of Paradise Lost, I also introduce you here to a few of his sonnets and other significant writings.
Here are some expositions of some of Milton's other works:
1. His sonnet on blindness
Here are my essays on Paradise Lost. The first fifty focus on Book I of PL; the next sixteen discuss issues in Book III; the final four present some introductory thoughts on Book IV. I wrote most of the essay in Summer and Fall 2009.
