In this seminar, while we will focus on Paradise Lost, we will also discuss selections from Milton's earlier poetry as well as from his prose works. The political contexts of the English Civil War and the Restoration will be central to our discussion. Moreover, the theological controversies of the time, questions of gender, as well as education, censorship and the reception of the Bible and of classical antiquity will also play a role. In the later part of the seminar, depending on the interests of participants, we may also discuss key stages of Milton's reception in later periods, centrally in the Romantic period.

Students are requested to purchase the following - inexpensive - edition: John Milton, Paradise Lost. Ed. John Leonard. London: Penguin, 2000 (or later). Students who have read books I-III, VI and IX of Paradise Lost by the beginning of term are guaranteed a place in the seminar.
