MILTON by Hilaire Belloc


Email this review


The author of Cromwell presents another facet of the England of that period in a biography of Milton, who played a more vital part in England's politics and social problems than is generally conceded him. That side of his strange career is given full play; but the main emphasis is placed on Milton's contribution to literature, and his strange, warped, bitter nature, keen intellect, and shrewd use of the tools put into his hands. A scholarly work.
