English 122 - Spring, 2013
In this course, we will study Milton's works in a variety of genres (lyric, masque, prose treatise, epic) with special attention to his development as a writer; his use of the resources of language and rhetoric; his attitudes towards his precursors (including Shakespeare), toward kings, toward publication, and toward women. We will look at his engagement in contemporary controversies about divorce, cross-dressing, monarchy, religion, and state censorship.
