Milton and Poetic Authority
Milton is the poet who has been most significant in the establishment of the familiar canon of English poetry so his achievement raises questions about the greatness of poetry written in one set of historical circumstances for an audience that the poem itself participates in constructing. In this context the course covers a range of Milton’s works but concentrates on Paradise Lost.
