Milton: Poet, Pamphleteer, and Patriot : John Milton is one of the world's greatest poets, the renowned author of the epic Paradise Lost and other canonical verse. But he was also deeply involved in the political and religious controversies of his time. Milton authored a series of challenging pamphlets on free speech, divorce, and civil rights, and lent his pen and personal to Parliament's cause in the English Civil War. Milton was lucky to survive the Restoration, and persevered to complete his greatest poems. Closely examining all aspects of this masterful writer's life - his poetry, his prose, and his activism in a troubled era - Anna Beer succeeds in bringing a literary titan vividly to life, four centuries after his birth.
