John Milton (Born December 9, 1608 – died November 8, 1674) was an English poet of the late Renaissance period.

John Milton (Born December 9, 1608 – died November 8, 1674) was an English poet of the late Renaissance period. He is most noted for his epic poem on the fall of Satan and Adam and Eve’s ejection from the Garden of Eden, Paradise Lost, which he composed after having gone blind. He studied at Cambridge University and was proficient in Latin, Greek, and Italian. His Puritan faith and opposition to the Church of England led to his involvement in the English Civil War. After the ascension of the Puritan general and parliamentarian Oliver Cromwell over the Commonwealth of England, Milton was given.

Yet, John Milton’s poems seem to resound with an optimism which is not found with other poets. Whether this is due to his deep convictions or whether the poet was playing to the romantic preferences of that time is unclear. What is clear is that his works have become a standard in love poetry and in scholarly studies. Even if one is not religious and cares not for poems of love, one is sure to find that just the scholastic and philosophical nature of Milton’s poems will prove to be satisfactory. When one ties in the life and the other scholastic influences of the poet, one is sure to be kept busy in thought.

The English Poems of John Milton.

John Milton (1608-74) has a strong claim to be considered the greatest English poet after Skakespeare. His early poems, collected and published in 1645, include the much loved pair L'Allegro and Il Penseroso ('the cheerful man and the thoughtful man'), Lycidas (his great elegy on a fellow poet) and Comus (the one masque which is still read today). When the Civil War began Milton abandoned poetry for politics and wrote a series of pamphlets in defence of the Parliamentary party, then in defence of the execution of Charles I: these include his great defence of the freedom of the press, Areopagitica. In the course of this work he lost his sight, and was blind for the last twenty years of his life. During this time he wrote his two great epics, Paradise Lost and Paradise Regained, and his retelling of the story of Samson as a Greek tragedy. This edition contains all his poems in English, with introduction and notes by Laurence Lerner (formerly Professor of English, University of Sussex)
