The two sides of Milton - the high humanist poet, author of the greatest epic in English and one of the greatest religious poems in any language, and the Puritan revolutionary, defender of regicide and champion of the English commonwealth. The goal of the course will be to see if the two sides can be held separate, or if they must be seen as complementary. We will read Paradise Lost at the rate of one book per week, always trying to relate the two sides of the poet.
