Milton (ENGL 220)
Miltons first publication, A Mask Presented at Ludlow Castle, is examined. Miltons vision of a poets heaven in "Ad Patrem," paired with the letter to Charles Diodati, with its particular emphasis on the need for chastity in poets, is used as a springboard to a discussion of the depiction of sexual ideals in the masque. Revelation 14, 1 Corinthians, and the Apology for Smectymnuus are also discussed at length, as are the poets biography and the history of the masques title.
