Milton (ENGL 220)
Books Eleven and Twelve of Paradise Lost and their radical departure from the poems previous style are discussed. The transformation of Miltons famously sonorous verse into a more didactic mode is closely documented, and the poems increasing emphasis on visual instruction is underscored in a study of the Archangel Michaels lesson on the history of the post-fallen world. Considerable time is devoted to both a consideration of Miltons late politics and Book Elevens depiction of the destruction of paradise.
