This module covers the writings of John Milton, in verse and in prose, from the beginning of his career to the end and across the tumultuous decades of the seventeenth century through which Milton lived. In every instance we will try and combine faithful attention to the text with a keen awareness of how Milton's contexts - literary, historical, and otherwise - shaped and were shaped by Milton's work. Students should be prepared for an intense programme of primary and secondary reading and for heavily discussion-based seminars. Assessment will be by a progression of essays; there is no exam.
