Lecture Details

Milton (ENGL 220) An introduction to John Milton man, poet, and legend. Miltons place at the center of the English literary canon is asserted, articulated, and examined through a discussion of Miltons long, complicated association with literary power. The conception of Miltonic power and its calculated use in political literature is analyzed in the feminist writings of Lady Mary Chudleigh, Mary Astell, and Virginia Woolf. Later the god-like qualities often ascribed to Miltonic authority are considered alongside Satans excursus on the constructed nature of divine might in Paradise Lost, and the notorious characters method of analysis is shown to be a useful mode of encountering the author himself. 0000 - Chapter 1.
