In her detailed account of Milton's life and career, Barbara Lewalski provides a close analysis of his prose and poetry, focusing on the development of his ideas and his art.

From the Back Cover:

John Milton's many and various works include magnificent poems,polemics, history, theology, and treatises on political,ecclesiastical, educational, and social issues. No writer beforeMilton defined himself so self-consciously as an author - both inprose and in poetry - as his God-given vocation.

In her detailed account of Milton's life and career, BarbaraLewalski provides a close analysis of his prose and poetry,focusing on the development of his ideas and his art. She shows howMilton, even as a young poet, constructed himself as a new kind ofauthor, commanding astonishing resources of learning and artistryto develop a radical politics, reformist poetics, and an inherentlyrevolutionary prophetic voice.

This insightful portrayal of Milton's life, thought, andwriting, as well as his contribution to public life, is animportant, stimulating, and timely contribution to Miltonscholarship.
