About this book
Creates a vivid new portrait of England's supreme narrative poet, the first biography to interpret Milton in the light of the new views of the causes of the Civil War.
The first biography of Milton based on original research for 40 years, and first to take account of new thinking about 17th-century England. Milton is seen here as flawed, passionate, ruthless, and ambitious, as well as one of the most accomplished writers of the time and author of the most influential narrative poem in English.
